Erik-Jan van Kesteren
Assistant Professor

I am an assistant professor in the Human Data Science group at the Methodology and Statistics department of Utrecht University. As part of ODISSEI, I work on several projects in the domain of computational social science.

My work covers a broad range of topics in statistics and computation. I have worked on structural equation modeling, regularization & penalization, Bayesian statistics, multilevel generalized linear models, geospatial data analysis, visualisation, optimization, federated learning, privacy, fairness, measurement, and more.

During my PhD I investigated how to extend structural equation models for modern data problems. As part of my PhD, I visited the lab of Rogier Kievit in Cambridge. I was also a part-time software developer at JASP.
