About the Project
My name is Koen Derks. I am a PhD Candidate at Nyenrode Business University in collaboration with the University of Amsterdam. My project aims to develop novel Bayesian methods for statistical Auditing. It leans on two pillars of research:
1 – Improving availability of modern auditing techniques by programming these statistical techniques into the free, user-friendly and open-source software package JASP for Audit (JfA).
2 – Developing Bayesian alternatives to current statistical methods that are specifically suited to perform audit work, by combining various sources of data such that the amount of data that is needed to get to the desired level of audit risk is minimized.
