am professor at the University
of the Erasmus University Rotterdam Institute for Behavior and Biology (EURIBEB).
My research interests are in the fields of genoeconomics, behavioral
economics, and entrepreneurship.
In particular, I investigate how genes influence economic
behavior, and how insights into the genetic architecture of behavioral
outcomes can inform social and medical research. I am one of the
and co-founders of the Gentrepreneur Consortium and the Social Science
Genetic Association Consortium (SSGAC).
