Curriculum Vitae 

CV

Presentation

I began my PhD studies in October 2017, having previously attained my MSc. in Economics here in Umeå as well. My main supervisor is Professor Gauthier Lanot. 

Research

My research is mainly within labor economics and public finance. More specifically I study life-cycle behavior response to tax policy and social security design. In addition I have done research on the composition of earnings inequality, and I am currently working on optimal tax-transfer design when consumers suffer from irrational impatience in savings behavior.
