University of Glasgow - Economics - MRes


I am a PhD student in Economics at the University of Glasgow with 4 years of experience tutoring in various economics subjects at all undergraduate levels. I enjoy teaching very much and I believe that any topic is accessible to students when it is explained in the right way. As such, I am very keen on providing examples, making my lessons as interactive as possible, and in adapting as much as possible to how different students learn.

About me

I am a PhD student in Economics at the University of Glasgow, where I previously completed an MRes degree in Economics. My area of specialisation is in game theory. In addition to this, I have a lot of experience conducting applied research using R, and I have advanced studies in mathematics for economists, microeconomic theory, industrial organization and computational economics. I completed my undergraduate degree in International Economics and Business at Radboud University in the Netherlands. Additionally, I have taken courses in data science at VU Amsterdam. I enjoy teaching and I have previous experience tutoring and as a research assistant. I try to adapt my teaching methods to accommodate different types of learners, and I am keen on providing a lot of examples and the intuition behind concepts.
