Personal profile


I study how heterogenous agents, such as workers and firms or men and women, match with each other in frictional markets. I am interested in the nature of these matching processes (assortative matching), and study how the allocation of workers to firms and the composition of households affect labor market dynamics, economic performance, and inequality. Currently, I focus on the interaction of households' choices (e.g., marriage, divorce, fertility, labor supply) and policy (e.g., UI, taxation, parental leave).


I am an Associate Professor of Economics at the Department of Economics and Business Economics, Aarhus University. I am also affiliated with the IZA Institute of Labor Economics and the CESifo research network.  

I obtained my doctoral degree from LMU Munich in 2018 and was a visiting graduate student at the University of Chicago in 2016.


Economics offers a rich set of theoretical and empirical methods to analyse human behaviour and social welfare. The objective of my teaching is to help students understand and use the methods that are available at the frontier of economic research. Currently, I teach three courses:

4407: Labour Economics (fall)

5522: International Economics (fall)

5415: (P) Micro and Macro Models of the Labor Market (spring)
