Informative Hypotheses

Mariëlle Zondervan-Zwijnenburg

ZondervanMy PhD project is part of the NWO Gravitation Consortium Individual Development (CID). The project covers the formalization and evaluation of prior knowledge in the form of effect size models based on prior / posterior inference. Prior knowledge can be modeled in various ways, one of which is by informative hypotheses. Consequently, informative hypotheses will play an important role in my work.
