Expertise

My research interests revolve around the question how taxation affects economic outcomes. In my research, I focus mainly on the economic effects of tax avoidance. I also have a keen interest in the functioning and the economic effects of elements of the tax administration process. Throughout my research I attempt to contribute to issues which are important to policymakers and regulators. My research has been published in Economische Statistische Berichten and Issues in Accounting Education and has been covered and mentioned in, amongst others, Het Financiële Dagblad, Fortune, and the U.S. Senate Finance Subcommittee.

Teaching

I teach Financial Accounting in our Bachelor programs Business Economics, Tax Economics and Economics & Business Economics. I also supervise students doing their bachelor or master thesis.
