Ik ben Associate Professor of Finance aan de Universiteit Maastricht en Open Universiteit en tevens verbonden aan Netspar. Mijn onderzoek houdt zich bezig met behavioral household finance. Ik ben (1) geïnteresseerd in het beter begrijpen van hoe huishoudens financiële beslissingen nemen (b.v. sparen, beleggen, en annuïteiten) en (2) het design van nudges en interventies om financiële beslissingen te veranderen.
