These are the professional pages of Dr. Marco Spruit. I am a researcher in the Organisation & Information research group of the Institute of Information and Computing Sciences at Utrecht University. I am principle investigator in the Applied Data Science Lab and lecture in Data Science & Society and Data Analytics.

In my Analytic Systems in Applied Data Science research I investigate utility determinants of analytic systems in daily practices from a people-process-technology perspective, often using an action research approach. I consider metrics such as effectiveness, efficiency and usability to determine a system’s societal impact. A strategic side-objective is to improve transparancy in decision making processes. Two embedded research strands focus on Information Infrastructure and Text Analytics.

I have authored 100+ publications including 40+ journal papers. I have completed two PhD projects and currently supervise eight more PhD students. I serve as an editorial board member of the international journals on Decision Analytics, Business Intelligence Research (IJBIR), Semantic Web and Information Systems (IJSWIS), Autonomic Computing (IJAC), and Computer Information Systems (JCIS).

Until 2007 I was a professional software developer for fourteen years in the fields of Information Retrieval & Intelligence, and a product software entrepreneur for SMEs.

  • VACANCY: Scientific programmer Looking for a scientific programmer to help us introduce the STRIP Assistant platform for better medication prescribing into the daily practices in primary care, with an entrepreneurial mindset!Utrecht University’s Applied Data Science Lab is looking for a scientific programmer to help extend and/or redesign/reimplement the STRIP Assistant platform for implementation into the daily practices of general physicians in the Utrecht region. The STRIPA Implementation (STRIMP) project is being funded by the Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research (NWO). STRIMP can be understood as a spin-off of the Horizon2020 project OPERAM which is currently deploying STRIPA as the intervention instrument in a multi-centre multi-lingual RCT in secondary care. OPTICA is a Swiss-funded project where ...

  • EDUCATION: Applied Data Science Postgraduate Last week I presented the Applied Data Science Postgraduate MSc programme during the Utrecht University's Open Day, for which I prepared a 45-minute talk. This programme supports both fulltime and parttime participation and will teach you how to apply state-of-the-art concepts, methods and techniques in data science, how to apply this knowledge and analyse large datasets for innovation in the domain of health, and how to understand the potential and risks of applying data science for research and society.  It turns out that the specific eligibility criteria need to be communicated even more clearly, so here they are again, once more... You need to already have obtained a Master of Science ...

  • EDUCATION: my very first Pluim! From the latest departmental news letter... "The Education Advisory Committee (OAC-INKU) awarded a special distinction (pluim) to Matthieu Brinkhuis and Marco Spruit for the course Data Analytics". Now that I have received -- much to my surprise -- this one-of-a-kind certificate from the committee's not-so-infamous chairman, this Pluim-on-paper is proudly decorating our (i.e. Matthieu and myself) office walls...
