Short CV

Marjolein Fokkema works on statistical modelling (or as we nowadays call it: machine learning or artificial intelligence) and psychological assessment. Marjolein is an associate editor at The European Journal of Psychological Assessment and a member of the Dutch Committee on Testing Matters (COTAN) of the Dutch Institute for Psychologists (NIP).

Research

Marjolein develops methods that provide results that are easy to understand and apply in decision making. She has a fond interest in decision-tree methods. Such decision trees can provide results that are as accurate as more complex statistical models, but they are easier to understand and require less information for making decisions.

Teaching

Marjolein teaches master-level courses on Statistical Learning and Prediction, both at the Institute of Psychology and Mathematical Institute. She teaches a bachelor-level course on Psychometrics at the Institute of Psychology. In previous years, she taught a master-level course on Latent Variable Modelling.
