Growth, Unemployment, and Inflation
Growth, unemployment, and inflation are central in the everyday life, affecting individuals, firms, and institutions. This thematic focus area studies the multifaced aspects of these macroeconomic variables. We are interested in studying the potential drivers of short- and long-run of productivity and GDP growth. We adopt both theoretical and applied micro and macro methodologies with the aim of providing solid-based and useful research for the Nordic and the international societies.
We teach courses in economic growth and macroeconomics at the bachelor, master, and doctoral level.
