I am an Assistant Professor of Finance at KU Leuven. Previously, I was a visiting lecturer at Erasmus University Rotterdam and Monash Business School. In 2019, I obtained my Ph.D. in Financial Economics at the University of Antwerp, with research stays at renowned universities such as Stanford Graduate School of Business, University of Notre Dame, and Columbia Business School. My research interests include empirical asset pricing, wine economics, and financial history. I am an assistant editor at Financial History Review. I have published in several leading academic journals, such as Explorations in Economic History, Journal of Economic History, and Journal of Empirical Finance. My research has been featured in Bloomberg, De Tijd, and Financial Times.
