Twitter endorsements

Why others say your department should invite me for a skype-out ☎️

On 13 October, I let my twitter network know that I will be on the job market this year. Unprompted, some prominent academic colleagues took the initiative to write short endorsements. Below, I will give a selected overview of some of these endorsements. This way, you do not have to rely on my word alone when deciding to invite me for a skype-out or zoom-inar.



Colin F. Camerer

Colin is the Robert Kirby Professor of Behavioral Economics at Caltech, and a pioneer in behavioral economics and in neuroeconomics. We collaborated on the paper Standing United or Falling Divided? High Stakes Bargaining in a TV Game Show , in which we used data from the British TV game show Divided to study bargaining behavior. This collaboration was special to me, as Colin’s book Behavioral Game Theory had played a major role in my decision to switch from sociology to economics.



Richard H. Thaler

Richard is the 2017 recipient of the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences for his contributions to behavioral economics, and the Charles R. Walgreen Distinguishes Service Professor of Behavioral Science and Economics at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business. We collaborated on two papers: Split or Steal? Cooperative Behavior When the Stakes Are Large and Standing United or Falling Divided? High Stakes Bargaining in a TV Game Show . Both these paper use game show data to study decision making. On Richard’s invitation, I was a visiting PhD student at the University of Chicago in 2012.



George Wu

George is a prominent behavioral scientist and the John P. and Lillian A. Gould Professor of Behavioral Science at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business. I got to know George when I was a visiting PhD student at the University of Chicago in 2012.



Joel van der Weele

Joel is an associate professor at the Center for Research in Experimental Economics and political Decision making (CREED) at the University of Amsterdam, and one of the leading experts on the role of motivated cognition in economic decisions. We know each other through our involvement in the Tinbergen Institute, where we are both fellows.



Emily H. Ho

Emily is a Research Assistant Professor at Northwestern University’s Department of Medical Social Sciences. She is a rising star in behavioral science. I met Emily in 2015 when I was visiting the Department of Social and Decision Sciences at Carnegie Mellon University, where Emily was also a visitor at the time.



Martijn J. van den Assem

Martijn is a Professor of Finance at the Vrije Universiteit (VU) Amsterdam. We have an ongoing collaboration that has been very fruitful over the past decade.
