Born and raised in Wijchen, I wrote my first code on a Texas Instruments calculator in high school and got drawn into programming completely during my bachelor’s in Artificial Intelligence at the Radboud University in Nijmegen.

I went on to doing my master’s in AI at Radboud as well, where I focused on the chances of AI in the domain of natural language and the internet in general.
My graduation project focused on applying machine learning to search, a technique commonly called learning-to-rank. This technique is getting used more and more by search engines to optimize their algorithms, and as a result has many implications for SEO as well.
After a (very brief) stint as a developer at a marketing tech firm, I switched to Yoast, where I am currently working as a web developer in the platform team.
