I am an Associate Professor at the Erasmus School of Economics in the Erasmus University Rotterdam (Netherlands). I am a Research Fellow of the Tinbergen Institute and also affiliated to Netspar (Network on Aging, Retirement and Savings).
My main research interests are in the area of Health and Labour Economics. The research questions I am currently interested in are related to i) the impact of disability insurance policies on labour and health of the disabled and their families; ii) the impact of other labour market policies on health; iii) how care is provided to elderly dependent individuals and the effects that providing informal care has on female labour participation; iv) the measurement of inequality and inequity in health, health care and long-term care; v) the impact of policies and behaviours early in life on maternal outcomes, children health and other outcomes later in life; vi) the effects of cost sharing on health care use and health.
