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.
Measuring consumer choice behavior
Two recent projects provide new insights into how best to measure the choices that we make.
What can you use eye tracking for?
Eye tracking is a technique which records what you are looking at. With more complex analysis, it can give all sorts of information about a subject's mental state.
The Internet of Things, LoRa, 5G, and measuring behavior
New techniques for connecting sensors will provide opportunities for researchers measuring behavior.
Researching comorbidity in patients with autism spectrum disorder
Patients with autistic spectrum disorder also tend to have other disorders like epilepsy. Why is that and how can understanding that help us understand autism?
Machine learning and object detection
Humans are incredibly good at recognizing patterns. Now computers can do it as well, and that can be useful. Read more about machine learning and object detection.
Measuring the user experience of tube feeding
Tube feeding has had a fascinating history, but there is still scope for innovation. Noldus will develop a system to measure its users' experience in the FoodFriend project.
The importance of good nutrition for human babies is well known. But what about young animals?
Food and Cognition project
The Food and Cognition project will form a cluster of partners in the East of the Netherlands, who will exchange knowledge on the topics of eating behavior, targeted nutrition and enabling technologies.
Hemineglect - and how to study recovery from it
Hemineglect is a condition caused by strokes or brain damage in which part of the sensory inputs to the brain are ignored and it is as if that part of the world which is sensed doesn't even exist.
The abolition of battery farming has improved chicken welfare, but there are still problems like feather pecking. In the ChickenStress project, we will try to understand better how to reduce stress and improve welfare.
