R.W. Krause, MSc

PhD Student

I am a PhD candidate at the Inter-university Center for Social Science Theory and Methodology (ICS)* and the Department of Sociology of the University of Groningen.

My PhD project tackles the problem of missing data in network analyses. Every quantitative scientist is bound to encounter missing data at some point. While there are very good methods to handle missing data in non-network research, missing data in networks is much less researched. Missing data induces significant biases in network statistics. We investigate cutting edge methods to reduce and overcome biases induced by missing data in network studies.

Currently I am working multiple imputation procedures for longitdunal network analyses (specifically in SAOMs) and cross-sectional network analyses (using Bayesian ERGMs).

My supervisors are: Mark Huisman, Christian Steglich and Tom Snijders.

* The Inter-university Center for Social Science Theory and Methodology(ICS) is a leading research center and graduate school in the social sciences in the Netherlands. It was founded in 1986, and since 1993 accredited by the Royal Dutch Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW). ICS is located at four universities: the University of Groningen, Utrecht University,  Radboud University Nijmegen and the University of Amsterdam.
