I am a PhD fellow at the University of Copenhagen, Department of Economics, with a scholarship from the Central Bank of Denmark, Danmarks Nationalbank.
Primary fields of research
I am a macroeconomist interested in what inequality does to the macroeconomy and what the macroeconomy does to inequality. Specifically, I am interested in
- why we find such big differences in income and wealth at the micro level,
- what this heterogeneity implies for the macroeconomy and macroeconomic policy tools such as monetary and fiscal interventions,
- how policy tools affects different groups in society.
Thus far, my research has dealt with
- micro-founded consumption-savings behavior in heterogenous agent model,
- wealth accumulation and explanations for the distribution of wealth in soceity,
- conusmption basket heterogeneity
