Research

I am a researcher at the Swedish Institute for Social Research (SOFI) at Stockholm University. My primary fields of research are applied microeconomics and behavioral economics, with a focus on gender differences in labor market outcomes. I obtained my PhD in Economics from the Stockholm School of Economics in 2014. Click here to download my CV.
