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 Business Intelligence, 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.
