Anna Dreber Almenberg has today been appointed Professor of Economics by the Board of the Stockholm School of Economics. Anna is a well-established researcher whose interdisciplinary studies in behavioral economics have been published in the world’s foremost scientific journals. In connection with Anna’s promotion as professor, she becomes the holder of the Johan Björkman Chair in Economics.
With today’s decision, Anna Dreber Almenberg becomes the first female professor of economics at the Stockholm School of Economics.
Anna has published more than 40 scientific studies, including publications in top journals Nature, Science, and American Economic Review, and her articles have received more than 3,000 scientific citations.
Anna has been associated with the faculty of the Stockholm School of Economics since 2011. In 2013, she became a Wallenberg Academy Fellow and, since May this year, she is a member of The Young Academy of Sweden (Sveriges Unga Akademi), a forum for some of Sweden’s most promising young researchers.
“I am very pleased to have become a professor and I am grateful for the confidence shown in me by both the Stockholm School of Economics and the Johan Björkman Foundation,” says Anna Dreber Almenberg, Professor of Economics at the Stockholm School of Economics.
In collaboration with researchers around the world, Anna is studying what determines individuals’ economic decisions. By means of economic experiments, she has studied how economic preferences are affected by hormones, for example, and why some individuals accept greater risk or are more altruistic than others. Anna is also studying the reliability of research results by, for example, using betting between researchers to investigate how likely it is that hypotheses tested in different fields of research are reliable.
