I was born (1974) and raised in Roosendaal (The Netherlands). I have 3 brothers. Both parents were teachers. I am married and we have a little boy. In my free time I am busy renovating our house, and I like to play the guitar or soccer. I studied Economic Psychology at the Universities in Leiden and Tilburg. In 2006 I received my Ph.D degree. With my background in Psychology I am interested in people’s behaviour and thinking.
