I am an Assistant Professor in Economics and Social Data Science at University of Copenhagen. The majority of my research focuses on education related behavior and policies, using methods from economics and data science. Some areas of within education is school choice, use of digital technology, prediction tools for intervention as well as peer effects/social interactions. Other research topics include using tools from econometrics and data science to investigate human behavior more broadly.

I supervise students in the core areas of my research and teach courses at the intersection of econometrics and data science. I served as Head of Studies for MSc Social Data Science from 2019-2021.
