  • other domains: sure, come discuss with me and let us see if I can supervise your research plan

Research methods

  • systematic literature review
  • design science: create something in a systematic way (framework, tool, method, etc.)
  • behavioural science: build theory based on observations, questionnaires, experiments, etc.


  • English or Dutch
  • Theoretical or (rather) practical (e.g., in collaboration with a company)
  • Recommended for ambitious students: write an academic paper (15 pages) as a master dissertation (no need to write a separate text for the thesis), this requires more work from both you and me, but if successful this is very rewarding for both.
