Tim Kooijmans is a lecturer in finance at the School of Economics Finance and Marketing. His primary reaching and research interests are in corporate finance and financial intermediation. In particular, he is interested in how economic decisions of intermediaries are determined by their personal characteristics and experiences, as well as external considerations, such as legal risks and reputation.
He is also interested in the role that financial intermediaries and finance have played historically in shaping our world. For example, his research shows how credit and financial innovation were key for Dutch intermediaries in the 18th-century to channel funds to Caribbean plantations. He investigates how these instruments affected imports of enslaved people, and living conditions of those on the plantations.
Tim earned a Master Degree in Economic History at the University of Amsterdam, and a PhD in Finance at Monash University (2020).
