I am a Professor of Artificial Intelligence and Data Science at Wageningen University and Research, in the Netherlands. On my website you may find about my research team, grants, teaching and publications. Check also the new community-driven, open-access journal Socio-Environmental Systems Modelling!


  • Our recent review paper proposes an application-based roadmap for Digital Twins in agriculture. Digital Twins can be used pervasively at various spatial and temporal scales, and levels of complexity.

  • Our new Open Access paper in Agricultural Systems explores the benefits of machine learning in large-scale crop yield forecasting, contributing a machine learning baseline model that combines principles of crop modeling with machine learning. Early season predictions were comparable with the MARS Crop Yield Forecasting System. Accompanied with Open Data and Open Source software.

My website

This is my web office! I have developed this habit to totally restructure my website every couple of years, as an excuse to sharpen my web development skills. Nowadays, I am porting my website from Wordpress to Jekyll, while changing hosts, so please be patient!
