Economist and Ph.D. candidate

I am a Ph.D. student in Economics with an interest in the area of financial macroeconomics and in particular monetary policy. Especially, the recent global financial crisis and unprecedented policy responses to mitigate the effects of the crisis, have spurred my lasting interest in these topics. Through my research I wish to contribute to a better understanding of such policies. Besides my academic interests I love running, preferably in the beautiful area around Djurgården. Otherwise, I like to balance my mind through cooking and reading novels and am always curious to travel to new places.
