I occupy the Ragnar Söderberg Chair in Economics. My research and teaching primarily falls in the areas of institutional, organizational and behavioral economics. I also study corporate finance and monetary economics.
I hold a PhD from London School of Economics. Currently, I serve as Chair of the Social Sciences Class at the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences. Previously, I have headed the Committee for the Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel, served on the Board of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences, and served on the Board of SNS (Center for Business and Policy Studies). I received the Erik Lindahl Prize 1998, the Assar Lindbeck Medal 2007, and the Söderberg Prize 2015.
