Meet the Lecturers


The 2019 Lecturers are Professors Philipp Koellinger (Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam) and Ronald de Vlaming (Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam)

Philipp Koellinger

Philipp Koellinger holds the chair in genoeconomics at the Department of Complex Trait Genetics at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. He is one of the co-founders and principal investigators of the Social Science Genetic Association Consortium (SSGAC).

Koellinger investigates how genes influence economic behavior, and how insights into the genetic architecture of behavioral outcomes can inform social and medical research. Koellinger has published in journals such as Science, PNAS, and Psychological Science, applying genome-wide data analysis to study social-scientific and medical outcomes.
Koellinger recently received an ERC Consolidator grant.

Ronald de Vlaming
Ronald de Vlaming

Ronald de Vlaming is assistant professor at the department of Economics of the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. He is affiliated with the Erasmus University Rotterdam Institute for Behavior and Biology (EURIBEB), and member of the Social Science Genetic Association Consortium (SSGAC).

Ronald's research focusses on the application of statistical methods, matrix algebra, and numerical methods to estimation problems that arise in the study of the genetic architecture of complex traits.
