About me

  • I’m a 3rd-year PhD student at Queensland University of Technology (QUT), Australia. I’m interested in discovering knowledge from process execution data to support improved decision-making, especially knowledge about (human) resources.
  • My current research focuses on mining organizational models from process execution data and applying them for workforce analytics (read more).
  • I’m also involved in a Food Agility CRC project investigating how process modeling and predictive process analytics can be applied to facilitate complex decisions in crop production and sales planning.
  • I’m a member of the Explainable Analytics for Machine Intelligence (XAMI) Lab at QUT.
