Jean-Paul Fox

I am a professor at the University of Twente, Faculty of Behavioral Sciences, in the Department of Research Methodology, Measurement and Data Analysis. My research activities are in a number of areas of Bayesian response modeling.

Main interest is focused on complex modeling in higher-dimensional problems. The areas of modeling research relate to theory and methods of multivariate analysis, stochastic simulation, mixed effects modeling, among other things. Applications and data analyses are executed in the field of educational and psychological research.

I have obtained a personal Vidi grant (2007-2012), awarded by the Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research (NWO). My vidi-project was focused on the development and application of Bayesian response models for large-scale comparative survey research. A Bayesian modeling approach is proposed that addresses well-known methodological issues, as they arise in large-scale comparative survey research.

Research Master

September 9, 2013, together with the University of Utrecht: Department of Methodology and Statistics (UU) and Department of Biostatistics (UMCU), department OMD (UT) will start a two-year Research Master:

Methodology and Statistics for the Behavioural, Biomedical and Social Sciences

The study can be followed at two locations Enschede and Utrecht; in a dynamic way using multi-point video conferencing and joint classes.

For more information, contact me. Information: Research Master Flyer.


There is also a product flyer from Springer. ( product flyer )
