I am an assistant professor at Leiden University at the Methodology & Statistics unit of the Institute of Psychology. I study effective ways of communicating statistics and their uncertainties to improve data-driven decision making. You can find more information about my research here.

Furthermore, I strive to improve (statistical) numeracy in society and to create more awareness for this topic. To this aim, I co-founded the Statistics Communication section of the VVSOR and this society’s statistics blog, initiated a reading group on the topic, and engage in various outreach activities.
