About me:

How do we decide about our health? This question is core to my research, teaching and train of thought. I am mainly interested in finding answers to this question by combining insights from health economics, behavioral economics & psychology.

Currently, I am a Ph.D. candidate at Erasmus University Rotterdam. Most of my work has focused on: risk and time preference for health, valuation of health and quality of life & understanding healthy behavior.

Past positions:

  • Research assistant at various faculties of Utrecht University (psychology, law & veterinary sciences)
  • Tutor for high school students: English, mathematics and science


  • (Ph.D., ongoing) Behavioural & Health Economics - Erasmus School of Health Policy & Management, Erasmus University Rotterdam
  • (M.Sc.) Research Master Social & Health Psychology - Utrecht University
