About me

I am a PhD candidate in economics at Aarhus University. I am endlessly fascinated by human behaviour, and my research focuses on fairness, morality, and social norms. As I delve into these topics, I admire the synergies between the behavioural disciplines, which enable us as economists to understand and model how people act and think.

I am an affiliated researcher at the Centre for Integrative Business Psychology, the Copenhagen Network of Experimental Economists, and the Cognition and Behavior Lab at Aarhus University.
