PhD Researcher in Labour Economics & Sociology

Hiring Discrimination - Audit Studies - Applied Econometrics & Psychometrics


I am a joint PhD researcher in (labour) economics and sociology (of labour) at Ghent University and Vrije Universiteit Brussel with an interdisciplinary background. My present work focuses on the determinants of and contextual factors contributing to (ethnic) hiring discrimination. I have previously worked in consulting on data governance and data analytics projects. Besides, I have obtained a master’s degree in industrial and organisational psychology and a business degree in management.

I am a sucker for everything related to R (ggplot, Shiny, Xaringan…), my go-to environment for statistical computing. The content of this webspace is largely written in R using R Markdown, the Hugo framework and Aditya Telange’s PaperMod theme. In addition, it is partly dedicated to showcasing some of the (academic) work I have produced in R. Scroll through the tabs to get a glimpse of it!

I live together with my cat, Abel, and my girlfriend, Anna. In a former life, I was a DJ and music producer, and, to date, I still love to get some vinyl playing (from Paul Kalkbrenner and Bonobo to KAYTRANADA and Jack Garratt). You might find some traces of this past scattered around the internet. Another couple of random facts is that I’m very fond of the sea(side) and that I used to be a lifeguard at the Belgian coast during the summer months.
