I currently divide my time between managing the reorganization of the premaster programs for Social Sciences (SS) and Child Development and Educational Sciences (CDES) and lecturing at the department of CDES. My research focuses on quantitative measurement in psychology. I'm interested in the possibilities of combining representational measurement theory and psychometric latent variable modeling to ascertain the measurement level of psychological properties and the risk of inferential error when performing parametric tests.

The premaster programs for Political Sciences, Sociology (10 master tracks within SS), Child Development and Educational Sciences (4 mastertracks with CDES) need to be separated from the regular bachelor program both financially and organizationally. This project encompasses development of a joint methods and statistics curriculum, a didactical model centered around a new digital learning environment, a cost-effective financial plan, student recruitment and a more efficient administrative work flow, all in strong collaboration with the HvA.

Courses I currently teach include Methods and Statistics in Educational Sciences in the CDES research master and 'Toegepaste Methodenleer en Statistiek' or TMLS, a second year bachelor course on research methods and statistics. I also coordinate the 'OnderzoeksPracticum'.

Other professional activities include work for the Society for Mathematical Psychology. I helped organize the 2009 conference and created an maintained the society and conference websites for some time. Currently, I'm involved in setting up the Women of MathPsych workgroup. I'm also an associate editor for the Netherlands Journal of Psychology.

Inferential statistics are concerned with making inferences based on relations found in the sample, to relations in the population. Inferential statistics help us decide, for example, whether the differences between groups that we see in our data are strong enough to provide support for our hypothesis that group differences exist in general, in the entire population.
