About me

I graduated at the University of Brussels (VUB) with a Master's degree from the Solvay Business School (1999-2004). After graduating I briefly worked as an analyst in the IT-department of a local construction company, where I was responsible for information organisation issues of the company's CRM. This triggered my interest in information organisation and retrieval, after which I applied to enter the VUB's PhD program and started working as a researcher at the MOSI-research group. At the same time I obtained a Master after Master in Business Information Management at the VUB. In June 2010, I finished my PhD on corporate tags. More specifically, I investigated how corporate tags can be analysed to unlock tacit and explicit knowledge in the company.
