What do you like most about your job?

When I describe my job to my friends and family I often use the analogy of The Office (and I mean that in the best possible way). I truly appreciate being surrounded by people who are curious and whose knowledge and ideas force me to rethink my own. 

Which research from the past year are you most proud of?

Currently I am excited about a project that I have together with Thomas Douenne and Joël van der Weele. The project involves combining data from a survey experiment with administrative records. We are studying how citizens’ (mis)perceptions of inequalities affect their preferences for redistribution. With Magdalena Wasilewska on board as a PhD student, I am even more excited to see what we can learn from respondents’ narratives about what causes economic inequality in the Netherlands. I am proud to (hopefully) contribute to the national policy debate by conducting this study in the Netherlands.

What do colleagues probably not know about you?

That after 1 year of Economics I quit…only to return in the subsequent year with my tail between my legs. Working 1 year for an NGO as a 20 year-old will do that to you.
