I am a researcher and lecturer at the Erasmus Happiness Economics Research Organization (EHERO) of the Erasmus University Rotterdam. In addition, I serve as an associate editor (economics) for the Journal of Happiness Studies, and as a member of the board of directors of the International Society for Quality-of-Life Studies (ISQOLS) and the scientific board of the Happiness Research Organisation (HRO). I coordinate the minor Quality of Life and Happiness Economics and supervise Master's Theses at the Erasmus School of Economics.


My research focuses on the causes and consequences of happiness, particularly in relation to migration and economic behavior. My work is motivated by my commitment to developing and disseminating evidence-based information on human happiness to support policy makers and individuals in making informed decisions regarding happiness.
