Hi 👋 I’m Manuel, you can check my CV for the formal stuff.

I’ve always been interested in the newest technologies and their application, that’s why I did my Bachelor’s on Business Informatics, which focused on the use of technology and information systems for organizations and business. Later I decided I needed a stronger technical base which lead to studying a Computer Science Master in TU Delft.

My (work) interest is in the world of Data (Engineering, Analytics and Science) and what we can learn from it. For the past 3 years, I’ve had the privilege of doing this in the Web Information Systems (WIS) group and the Centre for Education and Learning (CEL). Lately I’ve become more and more interested in how data can explain and improve how we learn, so now I’m a PhD student in the field of Learning Analytics, Self-Regulated Learning, and more!

I enjoy music, travelling, cooking, cycling, beer and mezcal - especially when combined and shared. Always ready for a challenge and eager to learn new things, nowadays this is Educational Psychology, yoga and making my own hot sauces.
