Assistant professor

Personal homepage:

My PhD project is about structural modelling of household decision making. Specifically, I investigate how households adjust consumption/savings when children arrive and how couples value joint leisure when retired.

My supervisors are Professor Mette Ejrnæs and Associate Professor Bertel Schjerning.

Fields of interest

Household decision making, structural estimation and applied microeconometrics.

Current research

I am currently working on life cycle consumption and how children may affect the consumption behavior of households.

Also, I am investigating the joint retirement behavior of Danish couples.
