Profile

Tony Hak is an associate professor at the Department of Technology and Operations Management , Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University (RSM).



Professor Hak trained as a medical sociologist and psychiatric epidemiologist at the Erasmus Medical Centre, where his specialization was conversation analysis, discourse analysis and text sociology. He completed his doctoral dissertation in 1988 at the University of Amsterdam, where he developed a research methodology for sociological text analysis.

He is the author of numerous articles and book chapters on the methodology of discourse analysis, conversation analysis, the principles of coding and coder training, survey interviewing and cognitive interviewing.



Journals in which his publications have appeared include the British Medical Journal, Social Science & Medicine, the Sociology of Health and Illness, Qualitative Sociology, Quality of Life Research and Survey Research Methodology.



Together with Jan Dul he co-authored the book Case Study Methodology in Business Research (Butterworth-Heinemann, 2008). The Sage Encyclopedia of Case Study Research (Sage, 2010) published four entries from the book detailing different aspects of theory-testing and theory-building with cases.



Professor Hak's current research interests lie in the methodology of theory-testing, necessary condition analysis, case study methodology, and the challenges of academic business surveys.
