I mainly teach introductory microeconomics; since 2020 at Kristianstad University, before that at the Master programme in Welfare Policy and Management at the political science department in Lund. I also supervise student essays and co-supervise a PhD student in Lund.


Results from ongoing and previous projects have been disseminated to policy makers in popular articles (Distriktsläkaren, Ekonomisk debatt, Kommunalekonomen), reports (KEFU - Kommunalekonomisk forskning och utbildning), policy seminars (Region Skåne, Folkhälsomyndigheten, KEFU), and governmental reports (SOU 2018:38).

In 2019-20, I was an editor for the Swedish popular science magazine Ekonomisk Debatt.
