Marloes Lammers - Healthcare & Social Security

Marloes Lammers

Marloes Lammers has a doctorate in labour economics and has 10 years of experience with research in the field of labour, social security, and health care.

She is an expert on (quantitative) policy evaluations in social security. She has led projects on topics such as the effectiveness of reintegration plans, continued pay in case of illness, the implications of premium differentiation in social insurancy, and changes in pension regulations. Furthermore, she has ample experience with calculations of purchasing power based on administrative databases. Marloes is very knowledgeable on available (micro)data and econometric methods, such as regression techniques, duration models, and matching.

In her research, Marloes also uses qualitative techniques. For SEO she has interviewed both large and small employers on labour policy and absenteeism and she participated in discussions with management of health care institutions. Marloes has supervised various focus groups of health care professionals and has formulated surveys on topics such as the affordability of pensions and employment opportunities in health care.

Finally, Marloes has conducted a number of cost-benefit analyses for medical interventions at SEO. For example, she researched the costs and benefits of the treatment of asthma and COPD, the costs and benefits of dietary advice, and the costs and benefits of occupational therapy. Her economic and econometric background comes in handy when making such calculations.

Marloes graduated cum laude in 2006 with an MSc in Economics from the VU University Amsterdam. This was followed by a two-year Research Masters at the Tinbergen Institute, where she specialised in Econometrics and Empirical Micro-economics. Marloes has worked as a (senior) researcher at SEO since 2011, after a period as doctoral candidate at VU University Amsterdam. In 2017, she obtained her doctorate with her dissertation on the effects of various financial stimuli on job choices. A number of her articles have been published in renowned international journals, such as the European Economic Review and Labour Economics.
