I am an associate professor of Economics at the University of Copenhagen, Department of Economics and the Center for Economic Behavior and Inequality (CEBI). My research interests lie in health, labor and public economics.

Current research: Since 2020 our team has worked intensely on the research project “Skill formation in the labor market for physicians“. In 2022 we started research agenda on “The Role of Networks in shaping Health Inequality“. We are now, 2024, initiating the the project “The Role of Preferences and Beliefs in Shaping Physician Careers“.
