My doctoral defense

On 22 September, I successfully defended my doctoral thesis “Process Mining in Flexible Environments”. If you are interested in a one-hour dissection of my work during the last four years, or would like to see how a defense ceremony is conducted in the Netherlands, here is a video recording.

(As Wil noted, it is also one of the rare opportunities to see me wearing a suit.)

I cannot thank enough all those many people that helped me get there: My supervisors Wil van der Aalst and Ton Weijters, the members of my doctoral committee (Diogo Ferreira, Mathias Weske, Manfred Reichert, Walter Daelemans, and Jack van Wijk), all my colleagues, everyone who took the time to attend, and all of you supporting me with encouraging and kind words!

Our mission here at Fluxicon is to bring process mining technology to a wider, professional audience, which is a logical continuation of my work during my PhD. So, if you are intrigued how process mining can help you and your organization, by all means, don’t hesitate to get in touch!

The manuscript of my thesis will be made available in electronic form very soon. So for those of you who want to take an even closer look at my work, watch this space.
