Welcome to my website. I am an Assistant Professor in the Economics department at Tilburg University, primarily interested in behavioral & experimental economics, public policy & political economy, and behavioral & experimental finance.
With my research, I seek to understand how insights from behavioral economics influence behavior in questions of public policy, political economy, as well as finance and firm organization. In the past, I have predominantly used secondary data, as well as laboratory & field experiments.
