I am a regional economist employed at the department of Spatial Economics, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. My research encompasses a wide range of regional economics (and even regional science in general) research. But, my main interests focus on the following topics:
Dealing with all sorts of interaction in space, such as migration, commuting and trade, with an emphasis on the regional level.
Focusing on the heterogeneity of regions, firms and individuals. Under what conditions do we need which policies (if at all)?
