Biografi

Detta stycke finns inte på svenska, därför visas den engelska versionen.

My research spans many areas and is mainly empirical in nature. The focus of my current work is on the determinants of child well-being; including the relationship between parental background and child well-being, as well as effects of policy.  On-going projects use different strategies to identify the causal effects of family conditions and policy changes on child health and education outcomes.

I am also interested in how governance and accountability in firms and elected assemblies affect choices in the organization.  In previous studies I have analyzed the impact of ownership changes and structure on wages and employment decisions in firms. Using data from Swedish municipalities I have studied the effect of political competition and female representation on spending decision.

My previous research includes studies of the determinants of trade, for example on the relationship between the financial sector and trade
