I am an Assistant Professor in Finance at Maastricht University (the Netherlands)
My research focus is on behavioral economics and social finance, with a particular interest in philanthropy, socially responsible investments and the effect of hormones on financial decision making. In my recent projects I have been cooperating with several banks, pension funds and mutual fund providers. With these financial institutions I conduct field experiments among their clients and professional investors.
My recent paper "Giving Behavior of Millionaires" is published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. For a quick introduction into this paper, you can also watch my talk at the Rabo College Day.
I visited the University of California San Diego in 2012, 2013 and 2014 and the University of Toulouse in 2013. This fall I will visit the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA).
At Maastricht University, I coordinate a Master course on Sustainable Finance.
