I am a fifth-year PhD student in Economics at the Stockholm School of Economics and a Research Fellow at the Women and Public Policy Program at Harvard Kennedy School. The focus of my dissertation is to examine how gender differences in every day decision-making translate into economic inequalities. I will receive my PhD and be on the job market in 2018.
My job market paper "It Takes Two: Gender Differences in Group Work” focuses on the role of gender in team work. A primary motivation for this study is that experimental research is typically conducted on the individual level, but professional life often happens in groups. How women value their individual contributions in a group setting may have a large impact on their working life, since individual contributions to group success are not transparent. If women systematically undervalue their contribution, this could lead to lower lifetime labor market outcomes.
This study also examines other related topics. It provides evidence on how gender composition affects team performance. In addition, it studies how men view the contribution of their female counterparts: are men less likely to trust the quality of their female team members’ work? Does this affect the success of the group?
I hold an M.Sc from the Stockholm School of Economics and a B.Sc. from Humboldt University of Berlin.
