These are the professional pages of prof.dr. Marco Spruit. I am Full Professor of Advanced Data Science in Population Health at the department of Public Health & Primary Care (PHEG) of the Leiden University Medical Centre (LUMC) and the Leiden Institute of Advanced Computer Science (LIACS) of the faculty of Science (FWN) of Leiden University.

My overarching research objective is to establish an authoritative national infrastructure for Dutch Natural Language Processing and Machine Learning to facilitate and popularise Self-Service Data Science. Current and future work, as well as previous projects performed within UU's Applied Data Science Lab, are now embedded within the Translational Data Science Lab at Leiden University.

I have notably conducted several European Horizon2020 studies (OPERAM, SAF21, SMESEC, GEIGER) and nationally funded research projects (e.g. STRIMP). I have authored ~200 publications including ~80 journal papers. My research team currently consists of 8 Ph.D students and 1 postdoc. I have successfully completed 7 Ph.D projects as daily supervisor.

At the Leiden UMC Campus The Hague (LCDH) Marco is establishing the research line Translational Data Science in Population Health. This line has three themes. In Data Engineering for Population Health, we investigate the further consolidation, standardisation and enrichment of the ELAN information infrastructure, in line with Health-RI. In Data Analytics for Population Health, Natural Language Processing and Machine Learning techniques are investigated for their suitability to answer current and new types of LCDH research questions from a Self-Service Data Science perspective, in collaboration with the LIACS department. In eHealth Implementations for Population Health, we design and implement data science interventions through eHealth, mHealth and NLP software solutions within the LCDH region, in close collaboration with the LCDH partners and the National eHealth Living Lab (NeLL).

Before, I was an Associate Professor and, before that, Assistant Professor in the Natural Language Processing and Organisation & Information research groups, respectively, of the Department of Information and Computing Sciences within the Faculty of Science at Utrecht University for 13 years. Until 2007 I worked in industry for fourteen years as an Information Retrieval and Big Data engineer at ZyLAB Europe and the Intelligence Service, among others.
