Personal profile

Personal information

Erik Verhoef (1966) graduated in Economics at the University of Groningen (1991), and obtained a PhD in Economics at VU Amsterdam on a thesis entitled “The regulation of road transport externalities”. He is now affiliated as a full professor in Spatial Economics at this same university, and as a research fellow at the Tinbergen Institute. He has been Vice (Research) Dean of the School of Business and Economics, and is currently Head of Department of Spatial Economics, both at VU Amsterdam.

His research focuses on efficiency and equity aspects of spatial externalities and their economic regulation, in particular in transport, urban and spatial systems. Important research themes include second-best regulation, network- and spatial analysis and methodological development, efficiency aspects versus equity and social acceptability, industrial organization in network markets, valuation and behavioural modelling, and policy evaluation. He has been involved in various national and international research consortia. His research is at the interface of welfare-, micro-, transport-, urban-, spatial- and environmental economics. He has published various books and numerous articles on these topics.
