UKÄ subject classification

  • Economics



My current research is mainly oriented toward experimental and behavioral economics. Currently, I have studied how image concerns affect economic behavior. In another project the focus is on how risk taking is affected by factors, like competition and cognitive ability. In a relatively long lasting project I have been  studying the behavior of CEOs in China by the use of experimenta methods.


My main areas of teaching are microeconomics, industrial organisation, and experimental economics (from introductory level to PhD courses). I have received the best teacher award at the LUSEM. One of my most important pedagogical activities is to supervise bachelor, master and PhD students in their thesis writing.

8. Briefly describe your work with IT-supported teaching and learning

I use Live@Lund a lot for distributing material and to inform students.





9. Production of cases, publications on teaching and learning, teaching materials and textbooks

I also try to develop the course by reacting to feedback from students and by being alert to societal changes that motivate that new problems/issues are addressed. I also normally try to take up some actual cases in Courts where I have acted as expert and therefore can give the students insights to real word examples of regulatory problems in Industrial Organisation
