I am an Assistant Professor in Finance at the Erasmus School of Economics, Erasmus University Rotterdam. In May 2014, I completed my PhD studies in Finance at Maastricht University. In my research, I focus on institutional investors, in particular pension funds and the money management industry, investigating the asset allocation and performance of these investors in public and private markets. My research ideas and findings have been presented at academic and industry conferences, and have been covered in popular financial media, such as the Economist and Financial Times. In 2017, I am visiting Stanford University. At Erasmus University, I teach master courses on asset management and behavioral finance.
