Staff members with discipline Statistics & Probability

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.

My main research theme involves explaining observed data, typically resulting from psychological research, with a meaningful and concise model. This task becomes really challenging when multivariate and/or longitudinal measurements are to be modeled jointly. Specific methods of interests concern the development and evaluation of 1. data reduction modeling (e.g., principal component analysis); 2. latent variable modeling (e.g., exploratory factor analysis); 3. cluster modeling (e.g., mixture analysis); 4. modeling for test construction (e.g., GAMLSS model for test norming).

Postdoctoral researcher
My main research interests lie in the development of patient-centered diagnostic and risk-prediction models for use in psychiatric practice. More specifically, my research focuses on the methodological and statistical approaches that are needed to develop such models in evidence-based research. My methodological/statistical interests lie in (1) Modern Psychometrics, (2) Modeling of (intensive) longitudinal data, (3) Prediction Modeling and (4) Machine Learning.
As part of my job, I work as a statistical advisor for researchers in the UMCG Department of Psychiatry and in affiliated mental healthcare institutions.
