I am a Professor of Finance at the Amsterdam Business School, University of Amsterdam. I completed my PhD studies at Maastricht University and afterward worked at Erasmus University Rotterdam. In my research, I focus on analyzing asset allocation in public and private markets, fostering long-term investing, and improving the design and governance of institutional investors. My research contributes to a better understanding of the asset management decisions of institutional investors which can influence the asset prices and liquidity of financial markets as well as generate broader economic, social, and environmental effects. At the University of Amsterdam, I teach courses on asset management and investments.
