Research

My main research area is long-term economic growth with a special focus on economic geography. I am involved since September 2015 in Kerstin Enflo’s research project “The evolution of regional economies in the Nordic region - A long-run approach”. I am expected to finish my PhD under the supervision of Kerstin Enflo in fall 2019. Within the project, I am studying the importance of agglomeration effects and urbanization for long-run economic development in a Swedish context over the last centuries. I am also examining how the relative importance of first vs. second nature geography has changed over time. 

I also have an interest in macroeconomics, especially monetary policy. I sometimes write about current macroeconomic issues on my blog: http://macrothoughts.weebly.com/ 

Teaching

In fall 2016, I became a lecturer in the Master course "Economic Growth over Time and Space" at the Economic History Department.
