Introduction

Thanks for visiting my site!
 
I am a quantitative researcher specialized in financial econometrics/data science and portfolio choice. I am curious, driven, eager to develop myself and I like to work in teams.

I have extensive experience with academic research and have published in Management Science. I have won several prizes as a researcher among others the Netspar PhD thesis award 2012 for the best PhD thesis that is relevant for Netspar partners (companies in the financial sector such as pension funds, mutual funds and supervisors) and the EFA 2011 award for the best paper on asset allocation on the European Finance Association 2011 conference in Stockholm.

I have a lot of experience with research in practice by supervising approximately 100 thesis students that wrote their theses at companies in the financial sector. I know the latest hot research topics at companies and I know how to use the newest academic insights to achieve results in practice.

I have a lot of teaching experience. I taught master courses in Portfolio choice and Bayesian Econometrics for 100+ students in the Econometrics master at Erasmus University Rotterdam.
