These are the professional pages of Dr. Marco Spruit. I am an Associate Professor in the Organisation & Information research group of the Department of Information and Computing Sciences within the Faculty of Science at Utrecht University.

As principle investigator in the department's Applied Data Science Lab, my research investigates Model-Driven Analytic Systems for Self-Service Data Science within an Applied Data Science context. I represent UU in the Data Science Platform Netherlands (DSPN), and have also participated as the Data Science expert member in the interdisciplinary New Science Agenda (NWA) taskforce on Prevention. 

I am a research leader in three Horizon2020 projects and two nationally funded projects, and as of January 2019, have authored 142 publications including 54 journal papers. My ADS research team currently consists of 12 Ph.D students and 1 scientific programmer. I have successfully completed 3 Ph.D projects as daily supervisor. I serve on the editorial boards of the international journals on Semantic Web and Information Systems, Computer Information Systems, Decision Analytics, Business Intelligence Research, and Big Data and Analytics in Healthcare, among others. I am also associate editor in the Health Informatics tracks at the two premier conferences on Information Systems (ICIS and ECIS).

I teach the Data Science & Society and Data Analytics courses. Before 2007 I worked in industry for fourteen years as a Big Text Analytics engineer at ZyLAB Europe and the Intelligence Service, among others.
