I am an Assistant Professor at the University of Southern Denmark. I am an empirical economist and my research interests are in the fields of Health and Development.
Under health economics, my work centres around biomarkers and survival expectations, e.g. how survival expectations are formed, how they link to objective measures of health and economic actions such as savings and retirement behaviours. My work in development economics focuses on how the creative use of applied econometric methods can help policy makers respond to challenges faced such as child mortality and domestic violence, when dealing with data limitations in developing country contexts.
