I'm head of the section CODE, which stands for Cognition, Data and Education, and is part of the LDT department at the BMS faculty. Together with other BMS data enthusiasts, I run the Behavioural Data Science Incubator. We can support you in everything related to Data Science: developing new ways to measure, collect and analyse data.

As head of the Behavioural Data Science Incubator, I'm interested in everything that has to do with the analysis of data. With a background in psychology, I'm particularly interested in online and offline behaviour.

Together with an enthusiastic team I'm involved in redesigning the data analytical courses of BMS bachelor programmes. The new starting point is the linear model, facilitated by a new textbook I've written. In addition, we're introducing R instead of SPSS as the main statistical software to first-year students as of academic year 2020-2021. Currently I teach Data Analysis and Data Science courses to first-year and second-year bachelor students in Psychology. I supervise students working on their bachelor, master and PhD theses.

Courses in the current academic year are added at the moment they are finalised in the Osiris system. Therefore it is possible that the list is not yet complete for the whole academic year.
