Born: 1981
Family: Johan, also economist, and our sons Tim and Paul.
Interests: family, research, books (mostly science fiction), travel, wine (I have published two articles in the Journal of Wine Economics).

I want to influence how research is conducted and interpreted by researchers, the media and society at large, and the young academy is a perfect platform for that. Like many others, I am concerned about the low degree of replicability of scientific studies and I believe that we must rethink how we conduct research and how we communicate scientific results. I also appriciate the exciting interdisciplinary discussions in the Young academy.
