Welcome to my personal page! My name is Frederik Hogenboom, and I hold a BSc., a cum laude MSc., and a Ph.D. degree in Economics and Informatics. My degrees are obtained at the Erasmus University Rotterdam, the Netherlands, to which I am still affiliated for further spin-off research and new projects. Currently, I am full-time employed in industry as a language technologies expert at WCC Smart Search & Match, Utrecht, the Netherlands.

In my spare time, I still conduct research within the multidisciplinary field of business intelligence. Over the years, I have published many articles on various topics, ranging from general information extraction and news processing approaches to novel Semantic Web techniques and applications, and from applications of news and events in automated trading methods to intelligent learning agents. Therefore, as these things go in academia, my general expertise is spread across multiple disciplines, and I consider myself to be a computational linguist within the financial domain, with a strong affection towards knowledge-driven event extraction from unstructured data.
