Associate Professor

Personal homepage:

I work within the fields of empirical public economics (savings behavior, retirement and health economics) and applied microeconometrics. Specifically, by combining Danish policy variation and big administrative data, I answer policy questions such as “Do retirement savings policies increase total saving for retirement or simply induce shifting across accounts?” and “How is life expectancy related to income and pension savings?”.

I teach Health Economics at the Economics department and Health Economics with Stata at the Public Health department.
