I am a Postdoctoral Researcher at Lund University with the Department of Economic History. I hold a PhD in economics from the University of Copenhagen.

From September 2019 I will be based at Harvard University.

My research interests are in cultural economics, economic development, and economic history. 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.
