Grunwald’s research recently focuses on Safety and Luckiness. The basic idea of him is to make sure that inference from data is made in indeed and a safer way. Recently, most emphasis has been on testing that is safe under optional stopping/continuation; here is a general CWI project page with info on applying these ideas to meta-analysis. His recent publications/preprints in the general safety and luckiness direction.
