Welcome to my website!

I am an economist working as a senior scientific researcher at the Netherlands Institute for Social Research (SCP) in The Hague. There, I take part in the research programme Scarcity, Prosperity and Well-being. I currently work on ex-ante evaluation of social policies using microsimulation and other (quantitative) methods.

Before joining SCP, I worked in the Directorate for Employment, Labour and Social Affairs of the OECD and as a (post-doctoral) researcher in economics at Goethe University Frankfurt and University of Cologne. My focus there was on demographic change, the labour market, pensions and other social policies. I hold a doctoral degree from Goethe University Frankfurt for my thesis Macroeconomic Effects of Demographic Change: The Role of Human Capital and a master's degree in economics from University of Cologne.
