I am a Postdoc at the EduQuant research unit and the Department of Sociology at the University of Copenhagen. My research focus on economics of education, and social mobility.
I received my PhD from Aalborg University Business School in 2021 and have previously been a Visiting Fellow at the Department of Social Policy, LSE (Apr-Jun, 2022) and the Harvard Kennedy School of Government (2018-2019), and a visiting PhD fellow at the Center for Economic Behavior and Inequality, University of Copenhagen (Oct-Nov, 2019). I have also worked as a researcher at the Danish School of Education, Aarhus University, and as a Short Term Consultant for The World Bank.
