Born in 1996, raised in a small village near Amsterdam you have never heard of, eldest but smallest (1.76 m) of the three children at home and entrepreneurial from a young age (16), that is Roy.
Worked and interned for both high-growth start-ups and large corporates: Microsoft, TU/e, Studyportals, Prepr.io, UniPartners, Bijlescontact, Stadsverwarming Purmerend, and de Volkskrant.
Mainly interested in Computational Social Sciences, Big Data, and Data Visualisation. Challenges the status quo, falls in love with great design, and a big proponent of reproducible research.
Your work is very impressive and scores maximum points in many categories including in particular your attitude, your ability to work individually and learn and execute new complex methods. For these I really praise you.
Your project is sure outside the scope, but it's impressive. It might sound small but I really appreciate the way you organize, structure and design everything. People usually work in such mess and don't mind how things come out visually.
Loved having you as a colleague and seeing all the crazy innovative things you could achieve. Really impressed by your curiosity, talent, and inquisitive mind. I think whatever you choose to do you have a very bright future ahead of you!
It feels great to share your excitement about technology with 9 to 14 year-olds and then see their eyes light up.
Aftermovie Studyportals' Summer Event 2018 (thanks to my colleagues, Danko and Rob, for helping out with shooting footage).
With this video we surprised our manager, Thijs, for achieving 30 years in higher education. Congratulations!.
