Joris Kil is a PhD student at the Erasmus School of Economics (ESE) and affiliated with the Erasmus Research Insitute of Management (ERIM). His research interests are real options and behavioral corporate finance, specifically in relation to acquisitions. In his PhD thesis titled "Acquisitions Through a Behavioral and Real Options Lens", Joris combines real options and behavioral theory to explain the difference between perceived and actual uncertainty on the managerial level, and discusses the implications for acquisition decisions. Also, he investigates acquisition premiums in a real option context, showing higher premiums are warranted in consolidation strategies.
Next to his research, Joris represents the employees at the ESE in the school's faculty council (2010-present) and was a member of the ERIM PhD Council (2010-2012) responsible for organizing the 2011 PREBEM conference in Rotterdam.
