Hi! I am Martin Papenberg, working as a post-doc researcher at the the department of Psychological Assessment and Differential Psychology at Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf. I am interested in measurement, personality1 and programming.2

I am currently working on the R package anticlust that enables the automatic selection of stimuli for psychological experiments. Check out my preprint on the anticlustering method or this vignette illustrating how to use the anticlust package for stimulus selection in experiments. If you have any questions regarding the anticlust package, feel free to send me an email.

  1. My doctoral dissertation dealt with personality influences on test achievement, see On how testwiseness and acceptance reluctance influence the validity of sequential knowledge tests.

  2. For example, I wrote an introduction to the statistical programming language R, freely available here (in German language).
