Professional interests

My interests include (human) population genetics and complex trait genetics. The former is inspired especially by the availability of large volumes of measured genetic variants: single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) and structural variants (e.g., copy number variants), measured with micro-arrays or next generation sequencing (e.g., Genome of the Netherlands: www.genoomvannederland.nl). These offer unprecedented possibilities to investigate population genetic phenomena, such as geographic genetic gradients, selection pressures, migration, runs of homozygosity, and assortative mating. The latter is inspired by standard family and twin methodology as well as by the possibilities offered by large amounts of measured genetic variants. I like combining data and questions from social sciences and life sciences in order to formulate and answer novel interdisciplinary research questions about human beings and the relationship between their biology, their behavior, and the societies they live in.
