Personal information

Ronald de Vlaming is a postdoc at the department of Economics of the VU. He is affiliated with the Erasmus University Rotterdam Institute for Behavior and Biology (EURIBEB), and member of the Social Science Genetic Association Consortium (SSGAC).


Ronald's research focusses on the application of statistical methods, matrix algebra, and numerical methods to estimation problems that arise in the study of the genetic architecture of complex traits. His work has been published in the following peer-reviewed journals: PLOS Genetics, BioMed Research International, Nature Genetics, Nature Human Behaviour, and Nature. He has presented his work at meetings of the Behavior Genetics Association, the Conference on Computational Statistics, and the European Human Genetics Conference.
