I'm a PhD student in Economics at Tilburg University, specializing in Behavioral Economics. Research topics include lying, cheating and deception, social dilemmas, trust and reciprocity, and economics of sports. In order to study these topics, I both design laboratory experiments and exploit natural data. I'm currently being supervised by prof. dr. Jan Potters and prof. dr. Eric van Damme.

I was born on February 5, 1992 in Nijmegen, in the East of The Netherlands, where I grew up and attended high school. Subsequently, I obtained a Bachelor (2014) and Research Master (2016) degree from Tilburg University. In addition, I enjoyed a one-semester Erasmus exchange at the University of Copenhagen (Fall 2012).

In my spare time, I enjoy playing football and cycling. When time allows it, I like to attend concerts and music festivals. Next to economics, I've always had a passion for foreign languages. As a result, I'm fluent in English and Dutch, and have an upper-intermediate knowledge of French. In addition, I speak some Spanish, Danish and German.
