Mirjam Moerbeek is an expert in optimal design and statistical power analysis, in particular for trials with multilevel data or survival endpoints in discrete time.

She has written the book "Statistical power analysis of trials with multilevel data", of which Steven Teerenstra from Radboud University Nijmegen is a coauthor. This book was published in 2016 by CRC press and is accompanied by a freeware computer program to perform the power analyses. This program can be downloaded from tinyurl.com/spaml.

The contents of the book are as follows:

- Introduction
- Multilevel statistical models
- Concepts of statistical power analysis
- Cluster randomized trials
- Improving statistical power in cluster randomized trials
- Multisite trials
- Pseudo cluster randomized trials
- Individually randomized group treatment trials
- Longitudinal intervention studies
- Extensions: three levels of nesting and factorial designs
- The problem of unknown intraclass correlation coefficients
- Computer software for power calculations

- Methodological and statistical aspects of social science research (elective course academic master programmes).

- Multilevel analysis (postgraduate and master level)

- Multivariate statistics (research master)
