Ph.D. in Economics, Associate Professor at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), Trondheim, Norway.
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 2023, 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. I also teach Microeconomics and Macroeconomics (in Norwegian) at the University of South-Eastern Norway (USN).
Me in the scientific community

I am also a Member of the Scientific Committee of the Journal of Public Finance and Public Choice (JPFPC), Country Lead for Norway of the Global Labor Organization (GLO), and a Member of the Scientific Committee of Tax Justice Italia.
