Matthijs de Zwaan coordinates the Research Intelligence (RI) team at the VU University Library. The RI team supports research managers in strategic decision making by quantifying the impact that academic research has within the scholarly community and in society more broadly. In addition to his work for the RI team, he is also an instructor for the Library Carpentries.
Matthijs has a broad interest in the responsible use of data within the library and the university. Participating in the Data Science Working Group is valuable in learning about new developments and thinking about the opportunities that they bring to research libraries.
