Bio

I am an Assistant-Professor in the department of accountancy at the Tilburg University School of Economics and Management. In addition to having a Ph.D. in Accounting, I am also a qualified auditor with extensive experience in practice (Big-4 and non Big-4) and CFA accreditation. My research focuses on information acquisition and transmission in financial markets including how (governance) institutions shape this information acquisition and transmission.
