Drs. Harro van Heuvelen

Harro van Heuvelen was born in Leeuward on the 19th of August 1985. As a student he has  always been interested in Development Economics. The fact that he lived in Uganda for nine years because of his parents’ missionary work probably has something to do with that. His master thesis in Economics aroused his interest for academic research. His economics thesis supervisor then asked him if he would be interested in working with her on a project related to development economics as a Phd student. This was something he had never thought about or even considered a possibility. However after giving it some thought he realized that this would be something he would like to do.  Aside from a masters degree in International economics and business, he also completed his masters in Econometrics in 2011.
