I teach a variety of courses on macroeconomics, monetary policy, public economics, and programming in economics across different programs and regularly supervise bachelor and master theses. My teaching experience includes bachelor, (research) master, and PhD programs.

I hold the Dutch "University Teaching Qualification" which is awarded after passing a structured teaching program for faculty at Dutch universities. It includes courses on teaching, supervision, assessment, and course design and is completed by a comprehensive teaching portfolio.

In 2023, I have been awarded a "Teaching Innovation Grant" by the Tilburg School of Economics and Management to develop a macroeconomics course bridging the gap between bachelor and master macroeconomics. The result of this generous financial support is the course "Quantitative Dynamic Macroeconomics" as shown below.

Quantitative Dynamic Macroeconomics

This course teaches the basics of modern macroeconomics, especially Dynamic-Stochastic-General-Equilibrium (DSGE) models and necessary quantitative methods. The introduction of DSGE models is given in an intuitive and applied approach, leaving details for later courses. This course is meant as a bridge between intermediate macroeconomics in a bachelor program and a research master course.
