I am a professor at the University of Twente, Faculty of Behavioral, Management, and Social 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 latent variable 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, medical and psychological research.
I am working on the development and application of Bayesian response models for large-scale comparative survey research. In various publications the Bayesian modeling approach is proposed that addresses well-known methodological issues, as they arise in large-scale comparative survey research.
I teach in the Research Master Methodology and Statistics for the Behavioural, Biomedical and Social Sciences. In the first semester I teach Survey Data Analysis and I am also coordinator of the Research Master at the University of Twente.
