Personal profile


My research interest is to use academic tools and insights to improve solutions for real-world problems and to bring real life dilemmas to reshape the academic conceptualisation of the problem.

In the past, I have focused on time preference, nudge and policy design. More specifically, I have studied how preferences for correlations play a role in intertemporal risky decision-making; how to design policy intervention to nudge people away from procrastination; whether monetary penalty has deterring effects in school absenteeism; and how to design public communication to promote safety behaviour during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Currently, I study the dynamics of mobility behaviour in the Netherlands during and after the Covid-19 pandemic.


Past Experience:

- Teaching interactive tutorials for Introduction to Behaviour Economics (bachelor level course)

- Supervising Master and Bachelor thesis on experimental economics
