Please find my CV here.

I am Senior Lecturer at the Department of Economics at the University of Gothenburg. My research interests are in environmental and behavioral economics, applied econometrics and public economics.

My main current projects include field experiments on household waste and recycling behavior. One recent project successfully applies norm-based feedback nudges (similar to the well-known Home Energy Reports) in the waste domain - that paper can be found here.

I've also done research on the issue of within-individual spillovers across prosocial activities, for instance in response to policy meant to encourage one particular such activity. Another project relates to power calculations for experiments with panel data, including for cluster-randomized field experiments. See the research section for details.
