Welcome to Harmen's website

Welcome at my website. I am a PhD Candidate at the Amsterdam Institute for Social Science Research and before I was employed at Leiden University's institute of Political Science where I also graduated in the research master programme in Political Science and Public Administration (2013, cum laude). I am working on national and ideological representation in the European Parliament.

My research interests include parliamentary forms of government, representation and normative political theory. My skills include automatic gathering of electronic content (e.g., content analysis), big data analysis, and statistics (specifically GLM).

On a personal note, I am interested in geography and data presentation - see for example my map of preferential voting in the Dutch 2010 elections.
