Service

I support the survey programs at GESIS in their harmonization effort. I also offer consulting on how to harmonize substantive instruments; especially instruments measuring latent constructs: https://www.gesis.org/en/services/data-analysis/data-harmonization/harmonizing-substantive-instrumen...

For a glimpse into my work, you can also look into my GESIS Blog series on ex-post harmonization:
