Welcome to my website. I am Assistant Professor in the Development Economics Group at Wageningen University and Research Fellow at the Institute for the Study of Labor (IZA).
 
Before joining Wageningen University in January 2014, I was Research Associate at IZA. I have a PhD in Economics from the University of Groningen and was visiting researcher at the University of Göttingen during my graduate studies.
 
My research interests are employment and development, women's economic empowerment, and international trade. You can find a list of published papers and ongoing research on my Research page.
