Data Quality research group


Two new members of the survey group in Utrecht

In the last few months, two new members have joined the survey methods group at Utrecht University:

dr. Katharine Meitinger will join the group as an assistant professor. She previously worked as a senior research at GESIS – Leibniz Institute for the Social Sciences in Mannheim, Germany. In her new role she will various courses on methodology and statistics, and continue her research on web survey methodology, using probing in surveys, and cross-national surveys.

Danielle McCool has joined the group as a Ph.d. Student. She will work on a large project that was conducted within the WIN project – a collaboration between Utrecht University and Statistics Netherlands to investigate innovative data collection methodologies. In her Ph.d. project, she will study the effects on data quality of using mobile apps and sensor data to study travel behavior of people in the Netherlands.

Sadly, dr. Marieke Haan has left Utrecht University for a job as an assistant professor at the University of Groningen. We will miss her very much, but will continue collaborating on research projects

More information on the work of Katharina Meitinger and Danielle McCool will follow.
