Academic Interests

The bulk of my research concerns various aspects of welfare state policy, including public pension and education. To study such issues, I most often use models with heterogeneous agents and a rich demographic structure to study how different policies affect economic equity, inequality, and overall efficiency. Moreover, I work with register data to study the redistributive properties of the Danish public pension system, taking into account inequality in longevity.
