I am a Postdoctoral Fellow at Harvard University with the Department of Economics. I hold a PhD in economics from the University of Copenhagen.

My research interests are in economic history, political economy, and economic development. I am currently examining the evolution of individualistic and collectivist cultural norms in Northwestern Europe and their impact on economic outcomes such as migration and innovation.

I am on the job market in the 2019-2020 academic year. I will be available for interviews at the EEA Job Market Meeting in Rotterdam and at the ASSA Meeting in San Diego.
