Ismir Mulalic

Ismir Mulalic is an associate professor of economics at Copenhagen Business School. His research focuses on applied microeconomics and applied microeconometrics: in particular urban economics and transportation economics. He has recently examined how commuting distance affects workers' wages, the residence choice decision (residential sorting), the financial crisis and diverging house prices, productivity effects of an improvement in transport infrastructure, car ownership and usage, and parking policy. He received a M.Sc and a Ph.D. in economics from the University of Copenhagen, and has held positions at the Technical University of Denmark and Kraks Fond – Institute for Urban Economic Research.
