Hanna Mühlrad
Postdoctoral Fellow at the Department of Economics, Lund University

I am a Postdoctoral fellow at the Department of Economics at Lund University, Sweden. I completed my PhD in economics in January 2018 at University of Gothenburg, Sweden. My primary fields of interest are health economics, development economics, labor economics and global and public health. The main focus of my research is how access to technologies and information regarding fertility and reproductive health affect a large range of outcomes regarding maternal and child health, maternal labor market outcomes and female empowerment in both developed and developing countries.

My ongoing papers address 1) abortion legalization and effects on fertility and female empowerment, 2) IVF technology and the impact on mother and child and 3) Cesarean section among at risk births and short and long-term impacts. My research highlights the economic implications of recent technological advances in reproduction, providing women with better opportunity for decision making regarding childbearing as well as shedding light on how early health investments are of importance along multiple dimensions.
