I am a researcher at the Swedish Institute for Social Research (SOFI) at Stockholm University. I obtained my PhD in Economics from the Stockholm School of Economics in 2014.

My primary fields of research are applied microeconomics and behavioral economics, with a focus on the importance of gender and family background as determinants of labor market inequalities.
