I am a resident scholar at the American Enterprise Institute for Public Policy Research (AEI). My academic research focuses on political economy, and has been published in The Quarterly Journal of Economics. I write frequently for popular audiences on a variety of topics, including health and tax policy. I am a regular contributor to The Hill, The National Interest, and U.S. News & World Report. Before joining AEI, I was a teaching fellow at Harvard University and Universitat Pompeu Fabra. I was a 2012-2103 National Review Institute Washington Fellow, and am a board member of The Altius Society and of the Washington, D.C. chapter of the Netherland-American Foundation. 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.
