Associate Professor of Accounting and Director of the Accounting PhD-Program of Tilburg University
The main goal of my research program is to understand how managers can better motivate their employees in the current fast-changing and demanding business environment. I take an eclectic view on this research objective and investigate the role of performance measures, accounting information provision, social norms, leadership, and mindfulness.
My research is typically grounded in economic and behavioral theory and I use experiments, surveys, or archival data to examine my research questions. I also have a keen interest in executive compensation and corporate responsibility. My work is published in leading journals in accounting, operations research and psychology such as The Accounting Review, Operations Research, and Journal of Applied Psychology.
