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, entrepreneurship and innovation.

and co-founders of the Gentrepreneur Consortium and the Social Science
Genetic Association Consortium (SSGAC).
