Niels Bakker is an empirical literary scientist with an interest in both reading behaviour and the literary reading experience. Thanks to his projects for the Dutch Reading Foundation, he has a broad experience in setting up surveys into digital reading, covering questions concerning reading frequency, processes and experience.
