Short Bio:

I am a Professor of Economics at Lund University and a research fellow at the Vienna Center for Experimental Economics. I received my Ph.D. from Lund University in 2007, and after that, I worked at the University of Copenhagen before returning to Lund in 2011. 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.
