Luc's background is in Economics and he has a master in Behavioural Economics from the Erasmus University of Rotterdam. Luc's PhD focuses on the dynamic relationship between subjective well-being, self-generated thoughts and personality.
His first projects make use of a large-scale longitudinal dataset on individual-specific characteristic, thoughts and well-being. These projects focus primarily on the distinction between evaluative and experienced reports of thoughts and well-being, while providing an account of the relationships in question on global, daily, weekly and activity-based levels.
In the first terms of 2019, Luc was involved in the first LSE Change Makers project as a mentor and published several pieces in various LSE student publications, including the Clare Market Review and The Beaver. He is also the author of The 4-Day Diary of an Economics Student and frequently posts his writings (critical and creative alike) on his personal blog.
