Patrick Groenen


Erasmus University Rotterdam
Research field
Data Science


Professor Groenen's work focuses on a range of issues relating to exploratory multivariate analysis and multidimensional scaling and their numerical algorithms.

He is the co-author of a textbook on multidimensional scaling published by Springer and has published articles in the top peer-reviewed journals including, among others, the Journal of Marketing Research, Computational Statistics and Data Analysis, Psychological Methods, Psychometrika, the Journal of Classification, the British Journal of Mathematical and Statistical Psychology, and the Journal of Empirical Finance.
