I study the role of machine representation of knowledge and hypothesis in life sciences, metabolomics, drug discovery, and toxicology, involving cheminformatics, chemometrics and semantic web technologies. In the past, I have applied research on this also to QSAR and crystallography. Open source programming and Open science is also my main hobby, resulting in participation in, amongst many others, Chemistry Development Kit, WikiPathways, Bioclipse, BridgeDb, and others.
I’m currently doing my PhD at the department of Clinical Data Science. After some time outside of academia I recently decided to come back and I am very happy with that choice. My projects focus on making clinical data FAIR and integrating clinical knowledge into building and implementing an algorithm. I’ve been involved in OSC Maastricht since the very beginning because it’s my belief that research needs to be transparent and the results should be accessible to everyone if we want to advance science optimally.
Feel free to contact me with questions on open science, specifically on FAIR data.

Emmy van den Heuvel
Open Science Ambassador UM Campus Venlo
I work as an assistant professor at Maastricht University, University College Venlo. My teaching and research are focused on psychology and nutrition, and specifically the psychology of eating. In my position I find it important to teach students about the replication crisis and the importance of good quality (open) science.
Gerasimos (Jerry) Spanakis
Open Science Ambassador FSE
I am an assistant professor in Data Mining and Machine Learning working in a range of interdisciplinary projects with and outside UM. I support open, accessible, FAIR and societally relevant research which encompasses all research resources (data, software, process, publications). I also am the Chief Research Information Officer (CRIO) of UM leading the efforts for refining the I-strategy and I-agenda of the university.
