Welcome to my staff profile. I’m a post-doc researcher at Wageningen University and Research. My research interests include democracy, political-economy, sustainability and applied econometrics. I wrote my dissertation at the economics faculty of Groningen University and the COELO research institute. For my dissertation I used statistics to study how democracy functions, using data on local elections in the Netherlands. In the past I taught macro-economics, micro-economics and business ethics. I have masters in Economics and Political Science and have worked as a consultant and as a policy researcher.
