My name is Spencer and I am a PhD-Candidate in the section Public Administration at the University of Twente. My PhD-research project will examine the unintended consequences of the use of algorithmic technologies such as artificial intelligence and machine learning for fraud detection and prevention. My research aims to help public sector organizations assess the risks and benefits of the adoption and implementation of algorithmic technology.


My research focuses on the use of algorithmic technology, such as machine learning or artificial intelligence, in the public sector. I am specifically interested in use cases such as predictive policing or fraud detection and prevention.

My background is in data science so I use computational methods such as agent-based modeling to achieve my research aims. I aim to bring the latest computational methods into the field of Public Administration.
