I am an Associate Professor at the School of Business & Economics, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, a research Fellow at the Tinbergen Institute, and a faculty member at Amsterdam University College. I also organize #SWELL (Seminar in Water Economics onLLine) and I am the Editor-in-Chief of Water Resources & Economics.
My research is on cooperation and conflict in the management and conservation of water, nature and climate. I use a variety of research methods including tools and models from game theory, political economy, and experimental economics.
I teach both at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam and Amsterdam University College. Courses include "Introduction to Economics", "Environmental Economics", "Economics of Environmental Policy Instrument Design", and "Grand Challenges for Sustainability".
