From my Bachelors all through my PhD, I studied at KU Leuven in Belgium but I have taken opportunities to study in the US and Canada while also visiting research institutes in Austria, Barcelona and Sweden. My research fields of interest include public economics, regional and urban economics. My doctoral dissertation analyzes the impact of taxation and subsidies on regional development, firm growth and location decisions on the one hand and local government competition on the other.
