I am an associate professor in computer science at LIACS, the Computer Science department of Universiteit Leiden. Current research interests include: neural networks, genetic algorithms, analysis of algorithms, concrete mathematics, NP-completeness, bioinformatics — so, data mining and artificial intelligence. 

From 1976 until 1981 I studied Mathematics at Universiteit Leiden; during this period I also attended courses in Physics and Astronomy. My PhD Thesis in the field of mathematics (1985, supervised by Professor Gerrit van Dijk from Universiteit Leiden) is entitled "Harmonic analysis on symmetric spaces"; some keywords: Lie groups, Plancherel formulas, Fourier analysis, spherical distributions, special functions.  Later on I became interested in computer science, in particular analysis of algorithms and artificial intelligence.
