I am an Assistant Professor at the Department of Economics and Business Economics at Aarhus University. My research is in the intersection of household finance and macroeconomics, where I use micro-data to study consumption, stock market investments, housing and mortgages.
You can find a list of resources that are useful for being a researcher here, what you might call the hidden curriculum. These are the things that are not usually taught in a PhD program but that are essential to conducting research. This includes material on improving writing skills, how to organize a project, how to present your work, and lots of other practical issues. You can also look at a small presentation for PhD students that summarizes my thinking a bit.
If you have any links that would be useful for PhD students or junior researchers, please let me know!
