I am a PhD Fellow at Aalborg University, working in Labor and Education Economics. My research focus on apprenticeship markets, intergenerational mobility, and continuing education. In recent research, I investigate the effects of refugee inflows on natives intergenerational mobility, peer effects in apprenticeship training programs following the introduction of a GPA cut-off, and the effect on firm innovation performance from providing workers with continuing education such as MBAs and MPAs.
In the academic year 2018-2019 I was a Visiting Fellow at the Harvard Kennedy School of Government, and in Fall of 2019 a Visiting PhD Fellow at CEBI, University of Copenhagen. I have also presented my research at the OECD, and been a consultant for The World Bank.
