I currently hold an Assistant Professor position at the department of methodology and statistics situated at Utrecht University. I'm involved in the COVID-RED, and Trials@Home projects. Besides that I'm appointed as Extraordinary Professor at the Optentia Research Programme of North-West University, South Africa. I'm involved in the Stan project. Stan is “freedom-respecting, open-source software for facilitating statistical inference at the frontiers of applied statistics”. I work on the development of ShinyStan.
