Personal profile

Research interests

My work focuses on the political economy of the media. In particular, I study the political impact of the digitization of the media industry.  

My research interests include political economy, industrial organization, experimental economics, and law and economics.

During my PhD, I am supervised by dr. Jens Prüfer and prof. dr. Wieland Müller.

I am a member of Tilburg Law and Economics Center (TILEC) and Behavioral and Experimental Economists @ Tilburg. I acknowledge financial support for my PhD studies from a project grant on "Democracy and Big Data" of the Data Science Center Tilburg.
