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 Data Science Lab and lecture in Business Intelligence, Data Science & Society, and Data Analytics.
In my Analytic Systems for Applied Data Science research I investigate utility determinants of data analytics based decision support systems using an action research approach. In particular, I focus on effectiveness, efficiency and usability measurements in Health Analytic Systems. It is my strategic goal to contribute to a better world by improving transparancy in decision making processes from a people-process-technology perspective. 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.
