Erik Nuyts is researcher and lecturer at the University College PXL and associate professor at the University of Hasselt. He got a master degree in mathematics, and afterwards a PhD in biology. Since his specialty is research methodology and analysis, his working area is not limited to one specific field. His experiences in research, therefore, vary from mathematics to biology, traffic engineering and credit risks, health and physical education, (interior) architecture and art. His responsibilities both at the PXL-MAD as at the other departments are related to support of research design, research methodology and statistics.
