Rebecca finished the majors Operations Research, Econometrics and Psychometrics and Statistics. In the latter two she obtained her degree in 2005 and 2007, respectively.
In May 2007, Rebecca started as a Ph.D. student at the Department of Methodology and Statistics of University Utrecht under supervision of Prof. Dr. Herbert Hoijtink. In this project she worked mainly on order-restricted hypotheses in model selection.
In 2010, she became a (part-time) junior statistician for TNO (Dutch: de Nederlandse Organisatie voor toegepast-natuurwetenschappelijk onderzoek), where she puts scientific knowledge into practice.
In September 2011, she started as a (part-time) postdoctoral fellow on a project called “To change or not to change: Modeling traits and states”. In this, she starts with examining the optimal design for a random autoregressive model, where the within-person variance differs across individuals.
