Interdisciplinary collaboration leads to multiple publications

October 27, 2016

A fruitful interdisciplinary collaboration between Dr. Sarah Depaoli (Quantitative Psychology) and Dr. Jitske Tiemensma (Health Psychology) resulted in several papers in Health Psychology Review and the European Journal of Endocrinology. Together with several of their graduate students (James Clifton, Johnny Felt, and Holly Rus), Sarah and Jitske wrote an important introduction to Bayesian statistics within the field of health psychology (1). In addition, they published about novel scoring methods in frequently used disease-specific quality of life questionnaires (2,3).
