Ph.D. in Economics, Associate Professor at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), Trondheim, Norway.

My research

My latest research is at the intersection between Public Economics, Labor Economics and Political Economy, with a focus on (i) measurement of economic inequality and (ii) policy-relevant questions related to the «Nordic model» of economic development and welfare. I have been (2020-2021) Visiting Professor at the Department of Economics and Statistics of the University of Siena, Italy. In 2022, I will be Distinguished Visiting Scholar at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York (CUNY).

I am a project participant of the RCN-funded project “Make Taxation Fair” (FRIPRO, NOK 11.8 million, 2021-2026).

 

Me as a teacher

I teach at the highly interdisciplinary department of Social Work at NTNU, giving lectures (in English and Norwegian) on Economics of the Welfare State, Social and Welfare Policy, and Quantitative Methods.
