Bram De Rock  obtained in 2006 a PhD in mathematics and in 2007 a second one in economics (both at the KU Leuven). He is  currently a full professor at the Université libre de Bruxelles and a part-time professor at the KU Leuven, where he teaches, and has been teaching, courses in mathematics, statistics and microeconomics. His research focuses mainly on understanding household behaviour in terms of labour supply and consumption decisions, marriage decisions, fertility, etc. This research resulted in more than 70 internationally peer reviewed publications and some of those are published in so-called top-5 journals in economics (only the Quarterly Journal of Economics is missing). In 2010 he received an ERC starting grant to support his promising research agenda. As a recognition for the societal relevance of his research, he received,  together with his good friends Laurens Cherchye and Frederic Vermeulen, in 2019 the Francqui prize in human sciences, which is is the most prestigious scientific recognition in Belgium.
