Personal profile

Personal information

I am professor in genoeconomics at the department of Economics of the School of Business and Economics of the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam.


My research investigates how genes influence economic behavior, and how insights into the genetic architecture of behavioral outcomes can inform social and medical research. I am one of the principal investigators and co-founders of the Gentrepreneur Consortium and the Social Science Genetic Association Consortium (SSGAC).

Research Interest:

  • Social science genetics
  • Behavioral economics
  • Entrepreneurship
