Research Interests

In my research I apply discrete choice models and other econometric techniques to study healthy and sustainable consumption. I particularly focus on consumer and household decisions for food and fashion. Another research interest is the validity of stated preference approaches for environmental valuation. Current research topics include:

  • Substitution patterns between milk and plant-based milk substitutes
  • Evaluation of food reformulation and policy instruments to reduce sugar intake
  • Consumer segmentation of (fast) fashion consumption
