I am a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Department of Sociology of the Faculty of Social and Behavioral Science at Utrecht University, with affiliation to the Department of Methods & Statistics (NLP M&S group) and the ICS. My primary research interests are natural language processing (NLP), applied econometrics, the economics of gender & discrimination, and experimental economics.

My research combines NLP and high-dimensional econometric techniques with survey experiments to understand gender and ethnic differences in competitive, high-stake matters, e.g. debate competitions and recruitment contexts. I obtained my Ph.D. in Economics (awarded cum laude, top <5%) from Erasmus University Rotterdam (EUR) and Tinbergen Institute (TI) on December 1, 2021.

On this site, you can find my CV, references, research, teaching repositories, and my collection of data science resources.


Dec 19, 2023 I am thrilled to have received the ODISSEI LISS Panel Grant 2023 to run the project Gender and Ethnic Differences in Self-presentation Strategies in the Netherlands! :sparkles: :smile:
