I am an Assistant Professor in Economics at the Department of Economics and Interdisciplinary Centre for Population Dynamics (University of Southern Denmark) and affiliated with the Department of Economic History and the Centre for Economic Demography (Lund University). I hold a PhD in Economic History from Lund University (PhD award date is 22 January 2018).

My research aim is to understand to what extent and how public institutions and scientific knowledge contribute to health improvements, income growth, and inequalities in these outcomes. To achieve it, I apply the most recent methods of causal inference to individual-level historical and contemporary register data.

Research areas and interests: labour economics, public economics, health economics, economic demography and economic history.
