Photo by Thijs Niks This category can soon be archived ;)! Earlier this week I handed in my final paper, and yesterday was the day of my final presentation. It was a great day and I’m really excited about embarking on my next adventure. I will soon start as a PhD candidate at the University of Amsterdam, on a very exciting project in ‘Semantic Search in e-Discovery’ at the Information and Language Processing Systems group. Naturally, this blog will keep the world informed of my work and projects ;). Exciting times!
