University Rotterdam and associate editor of Small Business Economics.
My research interests are in the fields of genoeconomics, behavioral economics, entrepreneurship and innovation.

affect on economic behavior, with entrepreneurship as a particularly
vivid and relevant example. I am one of the principal

Genetic Association Consortium (SSGAC).
A selection of my papers is
