I am always looking for outstanding PhD candidates interested in joining the team to work on my ERC Consolidator grant.

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.
