I am an Assistant Professor with backgrounds in (work-& organizational) psychology and methodology and statistics. In my research, I generally work on improving (assessment of) measurement in intensive longitudinal data. More specifically, I develop methods to detect changes in response behavior in intensive longitudinal data (e.g., collected using experience sampling methodology). Such changes may be due to changes in response styles (e.g., careless responding) or due to changes in item interpretation. Modeling and understanding the dynamics of response behavior is substantively interesting as well as crucial for drawing valid conclusions.
Next to my research, I coordinate the course Statistics & Methodology for the Data Science and Society Master at the Tilburg School of Humanities and Digital Sciences and am involved in graduate courses for modeling intensive longitudinal data for PhD students at the Tilburg School of Social and Behavioral Sciences.
