Prof. Rik Pieters Ratio Emotie

Rik Pieters

Rik Pieters is the present incumbent of the Arie Kapteyn Chair (June 2016 – May 2019). This professorship is an honorable position that serves as a constant reminder of Arie Kapteyn’s signal contribution to research at the Tilburg School of Economics and Management (TiSEM).
