Research

My main areas of research are Labor economics and Household finance. In labor economics, I am mostly interested in how individuals and households react to labor market shocks. In a number of ongoing or finished research projects, I have been looking at the effects of labor market shocks, generated by rising exposure to trade competition, on households’ or individuals’ decisions on voting and migration as well as the allocation of decision making within households. In “Household finance”, I study the determinants of portfolio allocation and consumption and how and why they are related across generations. 

Teaching
