Mediastudies Department, Associate Professor

I regularly work software projects, most of them based on web technology: HTML, PHP, JavaScript, XML, and MySQL. I have recently started to dabble in R.

Current projects

In 2011, I joined the Digital Methods Initiative at the University of Amsterdam and build a couple of smaller tools so far: the Amazon Book Explorer (explore Amazon's classification structure and do co-word analysis), the FlickrPhotoPoolNetwork tool (extract social networks from Flickr groups), the Tag Cloud HTML Generator (various clouding options). Together with Erik Borra, I am working on an open source analytics platform for Twitter data.

I've recently tried to get into the habit of publishing code on github.

Since 2010, I have been maintaining a Facebook app, netvizz, that allows you to export social graph data and visualize it in your favorite graph toolkit.

In 2010 I also started working on a big Twitter analysis project in the context of the IPRI - Internet: Pluralisme et Redondance de l’Information research project. One of the first results was a study on French journalist on Twitter.

Old projects

In 2009 I did a lot of work with APIs and the first project is an interface for Web search, termCloud Search - a different spin on the same idea is contextDigger, which integrates the idea of facetted search navigation.

Also in 2009 I spent at lot of time on an R&D prototype project, la montre verte. I developped the JavaScript visualization client and some of the backend stuff.

In 2008 I started a project for a flexible REST based general purpose middleware for rapid prototyping, called restengine.

For my Ph.D. I wrote a collaborative outliner with some AI in 2005: procspace. This is a prototype.

In this context, I developed a Javascript GUI library that is currently v0.6. You can look at the demo or download a zip archive.
