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, I am also affiliated to Netspar (Network on Aging, Retirement and Savings), and I am as well a Research Fellow of the Research Center for Economics and Health (CRES) in Universitat Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona, where I obtained my PhD in July 2008.
My main research interests are in the area of Health Economics. The research questions I am currently interested in are related to i) the role that health plays in labour market transitions and how this is modified by the institutional setting; ii) how care is provided to elderly dependent individuals and the effects that providing informal care has on female labour participation; iii) the measurement of inequality and inequity in health, health care and long-term care; iv) the effects of co-payments on pharmaceutical consumption.
