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.
In particular, I investigate the role of genes, cognitive limits and
affect on economic behavior, with entrepreneurship as a particularly
vivid and relevant example. I am one of the principal
and co-founders of the Gentrepreneur Consortium and the Social Science
Genetic Association Consortium (SSGAC).
