I am a PhD candidate at the Finance Department of Maastricht University (the Netherlands) and a research fellow at ARC Centre of Excellence in Population Ageing Research (University of New South Wales, Australia).
Through field experiments, lab-in-the-field experiments and survey research, I examine the underlying mechanisms of people's financial decision-making. I am involved in a 5-year project with the Dutch pension fund of the retail sector, Bedrijfstakpensioenfonds voor de Detailhandel, where we especially look at effective pension communication and retirement savings behavior. Together with Michael Sanders and Janna Ter Meer from the the Behavioural Insights Team (London, UK) and Paul Smeets, I am working on a meta-analysis on social norms. Furthermore, Martijn van den Assem, Dennie van Dolder, Paul Smeets, and I work on a project where we research financial giving behavior in a game show setting.
