This website provides a window on my scientific work and interests. It is a means to transfer knowledge and stimulate development in Health Outcome Measurement.

Health Outcome Measurement is a broad interdisciplinary field that is still under development. Input is coming from fields as diverse as medicine, epidemiology, psychology, and economics.

My scientific education and training was in psychology, with a special interest in research methodology, data analysis, and psychometrics. These areas still pervade my work in Health Outcome Measurement.
