Staff members with discipline Social Sciences, Quantitative Methods

Academia develops at the interface of different fields. This is one reason why the University of Groningen is home to a wide range of fields, each with a great number of subject specialists. The overview below, which is based on a standard categorization of fields, will help you find the right expert for each field. If you cannot find the expert you are looking for in this list, try searching via a related field or faculty; you may find him or her there.

Overview of all disciplines

At the faculty BSS, I am employed on the chair Applied Statistics and Data Visualisation. 
My research focuses on the development of statistical models for applications in the social sciences. These models often contain dynamic or longitudinal components. Main areas of application are environmental and clinical psychology and the efficiency of educational interventions.  Furthermore, I’m interested in science communication - for which data visualisation plays a key role - and the improvement of scientific practice in general.
