Sanne JW Willems


I am an assistant professor at Leiden University at the Methodology & Statistics unit of the Institute of Psychology. My research mainly focusses on the communication of statistics and I enjoy collaborating on interdisciplinary projects on this topic. You can find more information about my research here.

I organize various activities for the Netherlands Society for Statistics and Operations Research (VVSOR) as the founding chair of the Statistics Communication section and co-coordinator of the Media Expert Group and online blog. Furthermore, I initiated and coordinate the reading group on statistics Communication and (in)numeracy and am a member of the advisory board of the ImpactLab. I also co-organize the “A PhD, is that for me?” event for mathematics students with which we aim to increase diversity in mathematics.
