I am a Professor of Economics at Lund University and a Distinguished Senior Fellow at Hanken School of Economics. During the academic year 2019-2020 I am a visiting professor at Hanken School of Economics / Helsinki Graduate School of Economics. I received my Ph.D. from Lund University, and after that, I worked at the University of Copenhagen before returning to Lund . My research focuses primarily on how people behave in economic and financial contexts and has spanned a broad range of topics including decision-making under risk, cooperation, and communication in games. In my current research projects, I investigate attention and focus effects in economic choice and address the question of why people delegate financial decisions to professionals. I serve as the director of the MSc programme in Economics at Lund University and as an associate editor of the Scandinavian Journal of Economics. I am also a member of the RISLab team and the Copenhagen Network of Experimental Economists and a research fellow at the Vienna Center for Experimental Economics.
