About the Speaker

Maarten Marsman is an Assistant Professor at the Psychological Methods Unit of the University of Amsterdam. He received his PhD from the University of Twente in 2014, after which he became a postdoctoral researcher at the Psychological Methods Unit, where he established the Bayesian Graphical Modeling Lab (https://bayesiangraphicalmodeling.com). Maarten’s research combines psychometric theory with cutting-edge Bayesian inferential and computational methods, focusing on the Bayesian analysis of psychological data in general, and graphical network models in particular. Together with his team, he has worked extensively on developing the Bayesian approach to graphical network modeling of discrete psychometric data. Maarten’s research has been funded by the Dutch Research Council (NWO) and the European Research Council (ERC). In addition to his research, he has contributed to the development of the open-source statistical software JASP, which incorporates frequentist and Bayesian methods for common statistical analyses, and to several R software packages. He is also an enthusiastic teacher of Bayesian and computational statistical methods.
