Personal profile

Research interests

My dissertation is focused on experimental economics applied to education: In my first project, I conduct a field experiment to study the impact of a compulsory debate program on critical thinking of students; in my second project with professors Dalton, v.d. Heijden, and v. Soest, we evaluate a mentoring program for university freshmen. Another experiment is currently in the planning stage. The preliminary title is "Essays in the economics of education: an experimental perspective".
Outside of my dissertation I am working on a project related to role models and how they influence behavior, on a meta-analysis of early childhood interventions, and on treatment effect spillovers in social networks.
I also collaborate with a colleague from TILEC, Martin Husovec, as we experimentally study how the existing notice and takedown system could be improved.
For more details on all my research, or to see my CV, please consult my website.
My supervisors are Eric van Damme and Jan Potters.


I TA the graduate Microeconomics 3 (CentER) course on game theory, and the undergraduate course Microeconomics 4 (Information Economics). 

In the past I TAed the graduate Seminar  Labor  Economics, graduate game theory Microeconomics 2 (CentER), and undergraduate Microeconomics: Theory and Analysis, which covers some game theory, behavioral economics, and methodology.

I supervise bachelor theses on a variety of topics; I particularly welcome work in the area of economics of education, experimental economics (or their intersection). Students interested in supervision should consult this page.
