In 2006 I obtained a PhD in mathematics (see also my poster for a brief summary) and this was followed in 2007 by my PhD in economics

I am a full professor in mathematical economics at both the  Université libre de Bruxelles and the KU Leuven.  I  hold visiting positions, as Research fellow at the Institute for Fiscal Studies and as visiting professor at The College of Europe . I am also a member  of the Centre for Economic Policy Research. Finally, I am one of the coordinators of the Belgian interuniversity research group GARP.  Please consult  curriculum vitae for more detailed information about me.

On June 6, 2019 I received together with my friends Laurens  and Frederic,  the Francqui prize in human sciences from the King of Belgium. This prize, also called the Belgian Nobel prize, is awarded every three years by the Francqui foundation. Here you also find some footage made by Andras Avonts and Marleen Willekens.

 Below you find some recent pictures of my lovely wife Michelle, my three adorable children Daan, Anna and Klara and some different versions of me that you can find online.
