Assistant Professor

Wageningen University and Research


I am an Assistant Professor with the Environmental Economics and Natural Resources Group, Section Economics, Wageningen University and Research. My research looks at the interaction of human behavior and the environment. I consider myself an applied microeconomist with a keen interest in understanding environmental and natural resource dilemmas, specifically those related to cooperation. I am currently working on issues related to common pool resource management, biodiversity conservation, and climate change. I primarily use experimental economics and survey methodologies.
