Explanatory Data Analysis group
Iris is a postdoc in the D-ACTwheels project and associated with the EDA group through her teaching in statistics and data science courses and her research interests. The aim of her current research project, the interdisciplinary D-ACTWheels project, is to promote an active and healthy lifestyle in wheelchair users. By using accelerometer data from wearables and indirect calorimetry data, the energy expenditure of wheelchair users will be estimated for different activities. In this way, more accurate activity and food intake recommendations can be made for wheelchair users.
Iris has obtained her Master degree in Brain and Cognition Psychology from the Erasmus University Rotterdam and in Methodology and Statistics in Psychology at Leiden University. She obtained her PhD in the field of psychometrics at the Erasmus University Rotterdam, titled ‘Testing in higher education: decisions on students’ performance’. Iris is interested in applied statistics, psychometrics, and meta-science related topics, and will focus on how to integrate multimodal data.
