I am a post-doctoral fellow in Retirement and Disability Policy Research at the Nationale Bureau of Economics Research (NBER) and I will join Lancaster University as a lecturer (assistant professor) in applied microeconomics in August 2024. In my research, I focus on the interplay between (mental) health, employment and disability insurance.

I did my PhD at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam and the Tinbergen Institute under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Pierre Koning and Dr. Paul Muller. You can find my CV here.
