Personal profile

Personal information

I am Associate Professor at the department of economics of the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam and a research fellow at the Tinbergen Institute. Before joining the VU, I was assistant professor at the University of Gothenburg in Sweden. I obtained my PhD at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam in 2016.


I do research on empirical labor economics, with a focus on the matching between job seekers and employers. Using RCT’s as well as natural experiments I have studied job seekers’ strategies in finding employment. Furthermore I have evaluated and designed a variety of job search assistance programs, including automated online labor-market information provision.

I have also studied labour market policies related to disability, childcare and migration.
