I am an Associate Professor at the Research Centre for Education and the Labour Market (ROA) at the School of Business and Economics of Maastricht University.

As an IZA Research Fellow I co-coordinate IZA's network program area "Environment, Health, and Labor Markets". In addition, I am a CESifo Research Network Affiliate.

My research interests are in applied labor, environmental and public economics as well as in political economy.
