Jeroen van der VaartUniversity of Groningen, the Netherlands
As from September 2020 I will start with my Ph.D. trajctory at the University of Groningen. My current research focuses on the economics of aging and social insurances. In a first project, I study inequalities in health and mortality of the elderly. As an extension, I currently develop a dynamic structural model to quantify the welfare implications of integrated social insurances. In a last line of research, I study the importance of survivor benefits to prevent poverty after widowhood.
