News: I am looking for top candidates for at least 1 postdoc position in the context of an ERC Consolidator grant due to start on 1 May 2014. Please contact me if you are potentially interested.

In case you're wondering: my first name ('Tijl') is pronounced ok as 'tell', and my last name ('De Bie' -- 'De' is not a middle name) as 'the bee'... (which is what it means!)

Good, now we can talk :-)

Currently I'm a Reader/Associate Professor at the University of Bristol, Department of Engineering Mathematics, and I'm part of the Intelligent Systems Laboratory.

My interests are centred around data science in the broad sense and its applications. Some of the areas I'm particularly interested in are: music information retrieval, bioinformatics, web and text mining, and media analysis. My theoretical focus is currently on subjective interestingness in data mining.
