Hi. My name is Sef Meens-Eriksson and began my PhD in October 2019. During my PhD I will be part of the research project "Competition for Garbage - an analysis of the waste incineration market", led by Dr. Thomas Broberg, and financed by the Swedish Competition Authority.
Previous my PhD studies I have studied political science (Bachelor´s degree) and Economics (Master´s Degree) in Umeå. During my master studies I specialized in environmental and resource economics, and both my master theses were conducted within this area as well.
I find it inspiring to take my PhD in Umeå as the city offers a broad spectrum of culture, sports and outdoor activites (especially during winter).
