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.
My research focuses on the development of statistical models for applications in the social sciences. These models often contain dynamic or longitudinal components. Furthermore, I’m interested in science communication - for which data visualisation plays a key role - and the improvement of scientific practice in general.
Furthermore, I'm Director of Research of the Heymans Institute for Psychological Research.

Another core interests lies in the implementation of novel statistical methodology into freely available software. The code to estimate the statistical models that are discussed in my research projects can be found on the Open Science Framework or GitHub (links can be found below).
I also research how statistical models are used and interpreted by empirical researchers.

Prof. Hak is program director of the two-year Groningen Research Master Medical Pharmaceutical Sciences. As a director he implemented innovations regarding the extension of research tracks including Pharmaceutical Design & Engineering, Drug Toxicology &Translational Technologies and Pharmacoepidemiology & -Economics. With these tracks the complete drug development cycle can be studied within MPS. He further introduced a strong mentorate for students, monitoring of research projects, clear selection criteria for examiners and committee evaluations of research projects, which resulted in a Top-label in 2017 and 2019 by the influential Dutch Keuzegids (MPS belongs to the top-10% best master educations in the Netherlands). As educational director Pharmacy (>100 faculty) he applies his broad expertise to lead the cluster Pharmacy, also in close collaboration with sister Faculties.
