I am a postdoc in Economics at the Centre for Collective Action Research at the University of Gothenburg. My research interests are in behavioral economics, environmental economics, applied theory, and public economics.

For my PhD thesis (presented at Lund University in September 2016) I studied behavioral spillovers from policy meant to promote prosocial activities. In a nutshell: if local government encourages recycling, what happens to sales of organic products? I have written three papers on this topic --- see the research section for details.

The thesis was recently awarded a Wallander post-doctoral stipend by the Jan Wallander and Tom Hedelius Foundation, granting three years of fully funded research.
