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 team primarily works on Self-Service Data Science. My research objective for the coming years is to establish and lead an authoritative national infrastructure for Dutch natural language processing and machine learning to facilitate and popularise self-service data science.

I am a research leader in four Horizon2020 projects and two nationally funded projects, and as of January 2020, I have authored 166 publications including 61 journal papers. My ADS research team currently consists of 12 Ph.D students and 1 postdoc. I have successfully completed 5 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.
