I am an experimental social scientist with an interest in laboratory experiments and cooperation dilemmas. 
I started my academic career with a BSc in Sociology at the Interuniversity Center for Social Science Theory and Methodology (ICS) at Utrecht University, after which I attended the two-year Research Master in Sociology and Social Research at the ICS. I continued to explore cooperation dilemmas in CPRs during my PhD at Nuffield College, University of Oxford, for which I received an Advanced Quantitative Methods funding award by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC). Highlights of my PhD in Oxford include traveling the world to attend conferences in amongst others Japan and Peru, and being awarded a pre-doctoral Fellowship from CESS Nuffield- FLAME University to stay for a month in Pune, India, to do research and conduct experiments at FLAME University. My research areas include institutions for collective action, laboratory experiments, cooperation, agent-based models, common-pool resource dilemmas, Game Theory and analytical sociology.  Currently I am a postdoctoral researcher as part of the department of Business-Society Management at the Rotterdam School of Management (Erasmus University Rotterdam), specifically for the UNICA project (https://www.nwo.nl/projecten/vic191052).
