Erasmus Initiative Dynamics of Inclusive Prosperity

Erasmus Institute for Philosophy and Economics (EIPE)

I'm a philosopher of economics and finance. My work has focussed on the modelling practices of economics, giving the history of economics a primary role. I am currently working in a project on "Values in Finance" which is part of the Erasmus Initiative Dynamics of Inclusive Prosperity. My work is on the philosophy of science of finance and financial economics. I am interested in the ways in which financial economics has characterised financial markets historically and how these have in turn shaped the development of the discipline.

Before this appointment, I was a Research Fellow at the Center for the History of Political Economy at Duke University. I've taught courses on economic methodology at the Utrecht School of Economics, the Faculty of Economics and Business at the University of Amsterdam (UvA), and courses in philosophy of economics at the Erasmus School of Economics.  I have also taught Philosophy of the Social Sciences at University College Groningen (UCG), Ethics in International Business, Ethics in Business and Management, and History of Economic Thought at the Faculty of Economics and Business at the University of Groningen

I am an elected member of the executive board of the International Network for Economic Method (INEM) and of the executive committee of the Latin American Society for the History of Economic Thought (ALAHPE).
