Welcome to my homepage!

I was recently interviewed by MBC Gyeongnam NEWS (South Korean TV channel) about the effects of Swedish parental leave policies.

Read the latest version of my paper “The child penalty in same-sex and different-sex couples in Sweden, Norway, Denmark, and Finland” (with Marie Evertsson & Maaike van der Vleuten)

I am a researcher at the Swedish Institute for Social Research (SOFI) at Stockholm University, Sweden.

My primary fields of interests are applied microeconometrics, labor and family economics, policy evaluation, and the economics of gender. I have two projects that study the LGBTQ Community: one on same-sex couples’ transiton to parenthood, and one on how transgender individuals’ labor market and health outcomes are affected by going through gender transition.

Some of my research in conducted within the GENPARENT project: Revealing Sources of Gendered Parenthood – A multi-method comparative study of the transition to parenthood in same-sex and different-sex couples, which is funded by the European Research Council (ERC).

I defended my dissertation “Gender, Incentives, and the Division of Labor” in June 2017 at the Department of Economics at Uppsala University.

I am affiliated to Uppsala Center for Fiscal Studies (UCFS) and project researcher at the Institute for Evaluation of Labour Market and Education Policy (IFAU).
