  • Profile

    My experience lies in developing online behavioral experiments by leveraging programming techniques such as R, python, and javascript. I also have a background in data science, particularly in the realm of text mining. By employing cutting-edge text mining methodologies, such as advanced topic modeling, I can uncover latent structures within texts. This unique combination of skills enables me to construct and analyze online behavioral experiments effectively while also delving into the depths of text data to extract valuable insights I am currently serving as a postdoc researcher in the ASCoR. Collaborating with Dr. Eline Smit and Dr. Saar Mollen, my research delves into the intricate relationship between individuals' social media usage and their exposure to food-related content. To do this, we have employed a multidisciplinary approach, including a novel data collection method known as data donation. Our objective is to unravel the intricate connections between social media engagement and individuals' dietary content exposure, ultimately shedding light on the underlying mechanisms at play.
