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, will be embedded within the upcoming Translational Data Science Centre 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 190+ 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 LUMC Campus The Hague (LCDH) I am currently establishing the research line Translational Data Science in Population Health. This line has three themes: Data Engineering for Population Health (DEP), Data Analytics for Population Health (DAP) and eHealth Implementations for Population Health (HIP). In DEP, work is being done on consolidation, standardisation and enrichment of the information infrastructure, in line with Health-RI. In DAP, among other things, 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, also in collaboration with the LIACS department. In HIP, the evaluations of the DEP and DAP outcomes are designed and implemented 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.
