what is going on ?! (last update 25 August 2022)

  • I am searching for a new PhD Candidate on Sustainable Finance (link). Deadline October 7th.

  • I am excited to design and coordinate the new course Societal Challenges in Economics, considering the economics perspective on SDGs and digital transformation and how the latter can address the former. The course is accompanied by several guest lectures related to transformational sustainable change, platform economies, and cybersecurity. Next to the introduction of the course, I will teach Sustainable Finance. I am happy to work together with other teachers who will consider different parts related to our specialisations.

The cohort will include healthy subjects from the region of Nijmegen. Our goal is to deeply phenotype the cohort including brain imaging, biological and behavioral measures, etc. This will result in a unique research infrastructure for brain research and beyond which increases and improves research opportunities. (More information) I must say that it is really interesting to work with people from other disciplines.

  • Want to see me in action? Here is our Master's Programme Promotion Video... guess who is taking the role of the professor?!
