Disciplinary boundaries have never been much of an obstacle for Jan whose published research spans the economic, political, and behavioral sciences. Guided by a generalist curiosity, much enthusiasm, and data availability (not unimportant!) Jan is most often found working on some paper project that may deal with the tiniest of genetic variations to the economics of happiness. Jan joins UCL as an Assistant Professor in Political Economy and Behavioural Science and is currently finishing up his PhD at the LSE and was previously a Fulbright scholar at Harvard University.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x=independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.
