We are Tilburg University

Bio

I have a background in law and public policy but was trained as a professional economist at Boston University and the Stockhom School of Economics, where I defended my dissertation under the supervision of Jörgen Weibull.

I specialize in industrial organization, the branch of economics which studies market outcomes. I have an interest in competition policy, especially collusive practices and exclusionary practices associated to predatory pricing or the use of vertical restraints,  as well as law and economics.

I have published in a variety of journals, including Games and Economic Behavior, Journal of Industrial Economics, International Journal of Industrial Organization, Journal of Competition Law and Economics.

I am a former director of the Tilburg Law and Economics Center. I currently serve as Educational Coordinator for Microeconomics at the CentER Graduate School.

 

Teaching

I currently teach a variety of microeconomics courses at all levels (bachelor, master, PhD). I think I am a demanding but approachable teacher. I strive to treat students as adults who take responsibility for their own education; that is getting harder and harder in a higher education system that piles up bureaucratic requirements and gradually tries to align university education with high school education.
