dr.ir. Han van der Aa


I am a postdoctoral researcher in the Process-Driven Architectures group at the Humboldt University of Berlin funded by a fellowship from the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation.

I obtained my PhD cum laude in January 2018 under supervision of prof.dr.ir. Hajo A. Reijers and dr. Henrik Leopold at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. I received a MSc. degree in Business Information Systems (2013) as well as a BSc. degree in Industrial Engineering (2010), both from the Eindhoven University of Technology. I was a visiting research at the TECHNION – Isreal Institute of Technology in November 2016 and at the Vienna University of Economics and Business from June to August 2013.

My research focuses on business process management, conformance checking, natural language processing, and semantic matching. My work has, among others, been published in IEEE Transactions on Knowledge and Data Engineering,  Decision Support Systems, and Information Systems.
