Web Developer at UvA Psychology

The university of Amsterdam is developing a framework for online psychological research that is to be deployed in research throughout Europe

Collecting data from participants requires some sophistication. When a participant completes his tasks successfully things are simple. But.. what if the tasks are not completed successfully? Are participants leaving the site prematurely? Or is the connection breaking down? Maybe the participant just lost interest, leaving the browser open. Valid research must take these factors into account.

The framework must be simple to use by other developers. This is not always an easy task when most developers have almost no computer science training or professional experience.

During my time at the department of psychology, most of my work concerned data collection, the interface of the participant and I have worked on internationalization.
