Martijn Stroom is a behavioural economist in the Real Estate group and PhD candidate at the School of Business and Economics, Department of Finance. His research currently focuses on the behavioural impact of crisis on policy and performance.
Specifically, his past research focused on the effect of the indoor environment (specifically heat) on heuristics and cognitive performance. Currently his research ranges from investigating the behavioural response to the COVID-19 recommendations to avoid busy places, to examining if working from home changes work productivity and satisfaction during COVID-19, and which (environmental) factors influences this change.
