I am currently an assistant professor (on tenure track) at the University of Amsterdam and a Research Fellow at the Tinbergen Institute. In June 2017, I completed my Ph.D. in the field of macroeconomics under the supervision of Jordi Galí at Universitat Pompeu Fabra. I am also a graduate of the European Doctoral Program (EDP). During 2015-2016, I spent a year as a research economist in the ECB’s Financial Research Division.

My research is question-driven in the area of macroeconomics, housing markets, macro-finance, behavioral finance and household finance. I am interested in understanding how agents take decisions at the micro-level, the implications of these decisions for the macro-economy, and what this means for optimal policy.

Depending on the research question, I choose the research approach. In the past, I have used and combined model-based theoretical approaches (OLG-models, DSGE-models, simulations) and behavior-based empirical approaches (survey and experimental data analysis).
