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 on the Board of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences. Previously, I have headed the Committee for the Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel. For seven years, I 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.
