I am a PhD candidate at Lund University. My advisors are Erik Wengström and Erik Mohlin. This year I am on the market and I will be attending the EEA Job Market Meeting in Rotterdam and the AEA Annual Meeting in San Diego.
I am an applied microeconomist who uses field experiments, lab experiments, and theory to investigate issues related to education and behavioral economics. I am especially interested in studying how incentives, preferences, and beliefs can motivate people to invest in themselves, such as studying harder or pursuing an education. In a second strand of research, I study how social preferences and beliefs about others’ behavior influence moral decision-making.
- Grant resolution: Eva Ranehill, Florian Schneider, Erik Wengström and I just received SEK 3,130,000 (€300,000) from the Torsten Söderberg stiftelse to study whether gender differences in social preferences explain gender differences in educational choice.
- PhD course: Friederike Mengel and I will teach a PhD course in Experimental Economics from July 6 to July 10 at the University of Barcelona.
