Sofie Cairo

PhD fellow

I am a PhD fellow with the Research Unit for Behavioral Economics and Labor Market Performance at the University of Copenhagen. My research is based on field experiments and surveys among job seekers in a collaboration with the Danish Agency of Labor Recruitment (STAR). I rely on experimental data as well as register data to estimate the effects of on-line interventions on job search and labor market outcomes for job seekers in the Danish labor market.

On a broader scale, I am interested in how to include behavioral insights into macroeconomic business cycle models such as DSGE models.
