Short presentation


I am a PhD student in Economics at Uppsala University, Sweden. Affiliated with Uppsala Center for Labor Studies (UCLS). Expected graduation spring 2020.

I will be on the Job Market and available for interviews at the EEA meeting in Rotterdam.

My main research area is in the overlap between macro and labor economics. Using both micro and macro data I study the link between macroeconomic fluctuations and the labor market.

Keywords: macroeconomics labor economics
