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 how it impacts the (human) learning processes through Analytics and Feedback. I had the privilege of working at the Web Information Systems (WIS) group as a Research Engineer for a couple of years, where I discovered my interest in Learning Analytics. Now I continue as a PhD in the Centre for Education and Learning (CEL), everyday learning about learning, and how can we use data and analytics to support this process.

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 Cognitive Psychology, yoga and making my own hot sauces.
