SpecialisationIntersection of Behavioral Economics and Microeconomic Theory.
Research interestsI am a Janeway Institute and Keynes Fund Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the faculty of Economics. I mainly work on the intersection of Behavioral Economics and Microeconomic Theory, but I am also interested in Experimental Economics. In general, I work on topics related to social identity and diversity. In my current research, I study how social context affects individual belief formation, and I show how this does not only influence the quality of people’s educational and occupational choices, but also the persistence of stereotypes and social norms, and the degree of diversity in firms and educational settings.

I obtained a Ph.D. in Economics from the Paris School of Economics. I also hold a Bachelor's and Master’s degree in Econometrics and Operations Research from the Erasmus University Rotterdam, and a Master’s degree in Economics from the Paris School of Economics. I previously worked as an econometrician at the Dutch central bank and I was a visiting student at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) during spring semester 2020.

In my free time, I am an enthusiastic musician, dancer, reader and tennis player who loves good food and a long walk with her dog.
