These are the professional pages of Dr. Marco Spruit. I am an Associate Professor in the Natural Language Processing research group of the Department of Information and Computing Sciences within the Faculty of Science at Utrecht University.

As principle investigator in the department's Applied Data Science Lab, my research investigates Model-Driven Analytic Systems for Self-Service Data Science, which often requires Natural Language Processing (NLP) technologies. My research objective for the coming years is to establish and lead an authoritative national infrastructure for Dutch natural language processing (NLP) to facilitate and popularise self-service data science.

I am a research leader in three Horizon2020 projects and two nationally funded projects, and as of August 2019, I have authored 158 publications including 58 journal papers. My ADS research team currently consists of 11 Ph.D students and 1 scientific programmer. I have successfully completed 3 Ph.D projects as daily supervisor. I represent UU in the Data Science Platform Netherlands (DSPN), and have also participated as the Data Science expert member in the interdisciplinary New Science Agenda (NWA) taskforce on Prevention. I serve on the editorial boards of the international journals on Semantic Web and Information Systems, Computer Information Systems, and Business Intelligence Research, among others. I am also associate editor at the two premier conferences on Information Systems (ICIS and ECIS).

I teach the Data Science & Society and Data Analytics courses. Before 2007 I worked in industry for fourteen years as a Big Text Analytics engineer at ZyLAB Europe and the Intelligence Service, among others.
