During the elections on 29 November in the Van Swinderen Huys, four finalists each presented a 10-minute mini-lecture in their field of expertise. Afterwards, the public and the jury had the opportunity to ask questions. Remco Regtuit, the winner of the 2015 elections, was the host for the evening.

The jury praised Dr Nissim for her thorough and fascinating presentation of a complex subject: author analysis. Her enthusiastic approach soon had the audience eating out of her hand, and resulted in an interesting discussion about important aspects of human-computer interaction. Her answers were reassuring: it will be a long time before computers outdo human thought processes.

The jury consisted of Dr Rie Bosman (winner in 2015 at the Faculty of Behavioral and Social Sciences), Dr Julian Hanich (finalist Faculty of Arts 2015) and student members Nard Willemse (American Studies) and Jelke Take (Archeology).

We warmly congratulate Dr. Nissim on her success and wish her luck in the University of Groningen Lecturer of the Year elections.
