Philipp Koellinger is an associate professor of economics and entrepreneurship at the Erasmus School of Economics (ESE).



His research interests are in the fields of entrepreneurship, behavioural economics and genoeconomics. His current research focuses on the role of genes and cognitive limits and their affect on economic behaviour.



Professor Koellinger is a principal investigator of the Gentrepreneur Consortium and the Social Science Genetic Association Consortium.



His work has been awarded several academic prizes and grants and his scholarly articles have been published in journals such as the Review of Economics and Statistics and the Journal of Economic Perspectives. He is currently one of the associate editors of Small Business Economics.



Professor Koellinger teaches the economics of innovation and entrepreneurship at the ESE.
