Daniel Lakens BITSS CatalystPsychology

Daniel Lakens works at the Human-Technology Interaction group at Eindhoven University of Technology. I publish on how to design and interpret studies, applied (meta)-statistics, and reward structures in science. My main lines of empirical research focus on conceptual thought and meaning. I love to teach (and was elected as the best teacher of a BA course at Eindhoven University of Technology in 2014), especially about research methods to young scholars (you can follow my free Coursera course). I’m currently funded by a VIDI grant from NWO on a project that aims to improve the reliability and efficiency of psychological science.

Dr. Lakens is an experimental psychologist who is interested in helping other researchers to design informative and efficient studies, and draw good statistical inferences from their data. He works on applied statistics, the importance of replication studies, and examining how we can improve psychological research in practice.
