Curriculum Vitae 



Postdoctoral researcher. I succesfully defended my PhD thesis "Essays on Labor Supply, Pension Policy, and Inequality" on the 27th of August 2021. 


My research is mainly within labor economics and public economics. More specifically I study the response of life-cycle labor supply and savings behavior response to changes in income taxation and public pension design. In addition I have done research on the composition of earnings inequality. I am currently working on how social security design affects human capital formation, retirement, and redistribution in heterogeneous agent models.
