Iâ€™m professor of banking and finance and chair of the finance department at the Maastricht University School of Business and Economics. On this site, youâ€™ll find information about my research, teaching (materials) and some hobby-related stuff.
In addition, you can find â€śCodeâ€? a blog with tips and tricks that may be of help if you are - like me Â - an applied economist with a knack for problems related to productivity and efficiency measurement.
If you are thinking about buying the book on Bank Performance that Jaap Bikker and I have published with Routledge, youâ€™ve also come to the right place. The book can be ordered here. On this site youâ€™ll soon find an example data set, programming code and additional results that will help you understand and work with the book.
Of course, you may be a (future) student, and (consider) following one of my courses. In that case, you can find course descriptions and - pretty soon - some additional information as well.
Since there is life beyond and besides economics, I also bother you with some of my other interests. On this site, youâ€™ll find some information on my bike tours, examples of the pictures I like to take, and a bit about single malt whisky, another hobby of mine.
