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.

"It is well understood that humans cannot manage anything that cannot be measured"

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.
