I am a post-doctoral researcher at the Department of Finance at the Stockholm School of Economics. My primary research interests are corporate finance, macroeconomics, and economic history.
I have served as teaching assistant in intermediate courses in macroeconomics, microeconomics, and international trade at SSE.
I visited the Economics Department at UC Berkeley and the Berkeley Economic History Lab during the academic year 2013/14, and the research department at Sveriges Riksbank during the Fall semester 2014.
My primary supervisor is Professor Richard Friberg.
