I am Aleid Brouwer, I work as a lecturer at the Faculty of Spatial Science at the University of Groningen and as a full professor at the NHL Stenden University of Applied Science in Leeuwarden. My Aletta research focusses first on ‘housing solutions for an aging population’; answering questions such as where do older adults want to live, what kind of whishes do they have, can they afford to age in place, are they prepared to age in place, do they have the social network to age in place? The second focus is on ‘who cares for the informal care giver’, what are the effects of the participation society for elderly and for the people who will do the caretaking, What are the effect for the caregiver on the long term, in work life balance, career perspectives and health and how can employers take care of their employees that might be overburdened.

I am an Assistant Professor in the Economics, Econometrics and Finance Department at the University of Groningen. My main research interests lie in the field of applied microeconomics. In particular, I am interested in labor, migration, development and education economics. My current research focuses on immigrants in the US, with a focus on human capital transmission, occupational networks and relative position of immigrant groups on the labor market as well as labor force participation of women in the Netherlands. With respect to public health, I am interested in the interplay of health and the labor market. In particular I'm interested in how flexible employment forms mediate the adverse effects of health on labor market outcomes.
