I am a student at the University of Amsterdam Graduate School of Psychology and a tutor in the BSc Politics, Psychology, Law and Economics at the same university. My main research interests are parochial cooperation, intergroup conflict, reputation, and altruistic punishment. I mostly work with economic games and am interested in methodological and meta-theoretical questions associated with them. For further information, see my website:
