I am an assistant professor at the methods and statistics group of the research institute of child development and education. I obtained my PhD (2013) from the University of Amsterdam on research about testing measurement invariance in multilevel data using structural equation modeling. After obtaning my PhD, I became a postdoctoral researcher at Utrecht University. In 2014, I received a Rubicon-grant from NWO. Therefore, from January 2015 until January 2016, I worked at the National University of Singapore. In 2016, I obtained a Veni-grant from NWO for the project: "One size fits all? New methods to account for heterogeneity in meta-analytic structural equation modeling". I will be working on this project project from 2017 until 2021.
