I am a resident scholar at the American Enterprise Institute for Public Policy Research (AEI). My academic research focuses on political economy and applied microeconomics, and has been published in The Quarterly Journal of Economics. I write frequently for popular audiences on a variety of topics, including policy uncertainty, Obamacare, and tax policy. I am also a regular contributor to The National Interest, U.S. News & World Report, and to AEIdeas, AEI’s policy blog. I serve as a board member of the Netherland-American Foundation in Washington, and was a National Review Institute Washington Fellow. I am a graduate of Utrecht University and Erasmus University Rotterdam, and hold an M.Sc. in Economics from Universitat Pompeu Fabra, as well as A.M. and Ph.D. degrees, also in Economics, from Harvard University.
