I am Maarten van Gompel, also known as proycon on the internet. Welcome to my homepage where I share some of my work and interests. I live in Eindhoven, the Netherlands, with my boyfriend Hans and our dog Jaiko. I work as a research software engineer (just a fancy word for computer programmer) in the field of Natural Language Processing at the KNAW Humanities Cluster and at Radboud University (Nijmegen).
I am very passionate about both languages and technology, and especially those areas where they meet!
