Biography

Judith ter Schure's research interests lie in foundations of statistics as well as in applied work. She divides her time between her PhD research on Safe Meta-Analysis at CWI and freelance statistical consultancy (significanthelp.nl). Her general motivation is the effect of statistics on society, which also inspires occasional writing for a wide audience – previously published by De Correspondent – and participation in popular science events like Nacht van de Wetenschap, ScienceBattle and Pint of Science.

Research

In my PhD research at CWI I develop statistical methods to summarize scientific studies that expand on one another, where dependencies arise between study series size, meta-analysis timing and individual study results. These methods should help scientists to prioritize research, interpret findings and design new studies – so efficiently accumulate scientific knowledge.

My research is motivated by the 'replicability crisis' in empirical science and the Reducing Research Waste movement in biomedical research (http://rewardalliance.net/).
