My research and teaching centers on the development and application of methods and techniques for the theoretical, empirical and psychometric study of human behaviour, regarded as emerging form a complex dynamical system.
The main focus is on developing a so-called “person-specific” (idiografic) research paradigm in which modeling and quantification of intra-individual variability (parameters of a dynamical system) is more important than inter-individual variability (paramaters of a static population)
From this perspective the curren ‘Replicability Crisis’ in the social sciences is rather a problem of the wrong theoretical paradigm than the wrong application of inferential statistics.
