I am an Associate Professor at the Development Economics Group at Wageningen University. I received my PhD from Wageningen University in 2011 (with honors) and was an Isaac Newton Trust Post-Doctoral Fellow at the Department of Land Economy, University of Cambridge, in 2011-13. My main field is development and experimental economics. My research focuses on institutions, social capital, (post-conflict) development and behavior and uses a variety of methods including surveys, lab and field experiments and econometric analysis. I have conducted field research in Burundi, Sierra Leone, Liberia, DRC and elsewhere. Recent projects focus on institutions in development, rural electrification and deforestation. I am a member of EGAP. See Google Scholar profile for papers and citations.
