"My passion is to understand what motivates individuals to give to charities and to invest not only for financial return but also for social return. In my free time, I enjoy playing improvisation theatre and playing the keyboard.”
Sustainable finance and charitable giving are two key themes of my research and teaching. I also study happiness and preferences for inequality. My papers have been published in the Journal of Finance, Journal of Economic Behavior and Organization and the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS).
For a quick introduction into giving behavior of millionaires, you can watch my talk at the Rabo College Day.
My work has been covered by outlets such as the New York Times, the Atlantic, the Guardian, BBC News, Süddeutsche Zeitung, and the Dutch press.
I visited the University of California San Diego, the University of California Los Angeles and the Toulouse School of Economics.
