Andrew Spink

Andrew is the program chair of the Measuring Behavior conference series and as such has built up considerable expertise in a wide variety of aspects related to methodology in the behavioral sciences. His own research was in ecology, but he has worked in various functions at Noldus since 1999, currently writing grant applications together with partners for collaborative research projects in which Noldus can further develop its innovative solutions.
