Welcome

I am a PhD candidate in Macroeconomics at the University of Amsterdam and the Tinbergen Institute. My advisor is Roel Beetsma. 

My research is focused on the insurance provided by pension systems and the labor supply distortions embedded in pension arrangements.  

In my job market paper, I compare in terms of macroeconomic outcomes and welfare the three most widespread types of pension benefit arrangements: i) the flat benefit (FL) system that pays the same pension regardless of the amount of previous contributions, ii) the notional defined contribution (NDC) system in which benefits are based on previous accrued contributions and iii) the defined benefit (DB) system in which pensions are a constant replacement rate times the average life-time earnings.
