Having a background as a Sociologist I am dedicated to doing research. I’m an expert in research methods and I applied it to a broad range of topics, such as (cultural and gender) diversity, the social domain, (mental) health care, economy, education, and even in midwifery- and veterinary research. I’m also an experienced leader in research, having led many research – and educational teams.
As a statistician, I taught research courses and statistics in higher education for more than twenty-five years and I supervised bachelor-, master- and PhD-theses. Besides I’m a critical friend to educational innovation teams.
Writing about research inspires me a great deal, for this enables me to share my passion with students, researchers and teachers. My most famous work is ‘Doing Research’, a textbook for research in higher education. This book is used at most Dutch colleges and it is seen as a standard work in research methodology.
