I am a PhD candidate in the Economic and Social History Research Group. My background is in both economic history and (business) economics. I am interested in long-term economic development and the role of individuals and institutions, mainly in relation to social and individual well-being, and in studying the consequences of structural transitions and disruptive changes.

My PhD project investigates the role of associative organisations in economic development, policymaking and well-being in the Netherlands from 1848-2020. This project is part of the research programme SCOOP (Sustainable Cooperation:) Roadmaps to Resilient Societies, a joint initiative of the University of Groningen and Utrecht University.
