I am currently a PhD candidate at the Paris School of Economics. I mainly work on the intersection of Behavioral Economics and Microeconomic Theory, but I am also interested in Experimental Economics. From September 2022 on, I will be a postdoctoral research fellow of the University of Cambridge.
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. With the insights obtained through my research, I want to develop informational policies that firms, educational institutions and governments can use to attract and retain a more diverse pool of employees or students, and increase social mobility.
I hold a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in Econometrics and Operations Research from the Erasmus University Rotterdam, and a Graduate 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. See my full CV for further details.
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.
