Personal profile

Research interests

My academic education took place at the University of Amsterdam, where I obtained a Master degree in Behavioral Economics and Game Theory as well as a Research Master degree in Psychology. During my studies I realized that the social sciences are not functioning as well as they should and that there are issues at both the institutional level and at the level of individual researchers. In my PhD-project, I mainly focus on the latter by studying the accuracy of researchers' statistical inferences, and the complexities of preregistration. Other research interests of mine include behavioral economics and evolutionary psychology.

Teaching

In the academic year 2020/2021, Olmo is co-cordinator of the course 'Construction and Analysis of Questionnaires'. In previous years, he was also responsible for the tutorials of that course and of the course 'Techniques of Causal Analysis'.
