Fred Van Eeuwijk

Fred van Eeuwijk is  professor of applied statistics at Wageningen University. His research concentrates on statistical genetics, especially the development of models for genotype to phenotype relations in plants. This work addresses the statistical  modelling of genotype by environment interactions from a number of perspectives (QTL/GWAS models, genomic prediction, hybrid models combining statistical genetics and crop physiology, hierarchical and causal models for multiple traits).

Wageningen University has as its mission ‘To explore the potential of nature to improve the quality of life’ and has over 3,500 employees and 12,000 students from more than hundred countries that work in the domain of healthy food and living environment.
