Research

My main scientific interest is the evolution of humankind, seen as a complex dynamic network. 



Organization

I'm the organizer of the Methods Expertise Centre of the AISSR (Amsterdam Institute for Social Science Research), it’s “Flying Circus” of methods courses, where I teach Social Network Analysis, R-bootcamp and LaTeX, and I provide the content for its website.

Program Committee of the Research Master Social Sciences.



Book

Bruggeman, J (2008) Social Networks: An Introduction. New York, Routledge. See additional web materials. The pertaining igraph software is a package of open source program R. When I wrote the book, igraph had its own Graphical User Interface but as that creates tacit problems (different computations than you might expect), I strongly recommend to use the Command Line Interface instead; see the manual.
