My primary research interests are within the topics of health economics, family economics, gender economic, and applied microeconometrics. In particular, I am interested in early childhood development, socioeconomic health inequality, gender differences in health and health behavior, and patients' interactions with the primary health care sector. My Ph.d.- advisors are Torben Heien Nielsen and Søren Leth-Petersen.

In the Spring of 2020, I visited The Center for Health and Wellbeing at Princeton University. 

In the autumn of 2022, I will start in as postdoctoral researcher at CEBI, University of Copenhagen
