I am an Assistant Professor at the Department for Technology and Operations Management at the Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University.

My research centers around how firms manage information on online platforms and markets. I study this question in the context of media markets such as the e-book market and online news. I use both economic modelling and empirical techniques such as machine learning and text mining.

I am also interested in using data from sports competitions (e.g. swimming, chess) to study questions relevant to management. In particular, I have several projects that use data from chess tournaments to examine questions related to human decision-making. The main innovation in these projects is the use of a strong chess AI (chess engine) as an objective benchmark against which human decisions are compared.
