Biographic information

M.Sc. Economics (2003) and Ph.D. Economics (2007) from University of Copenhagen
Dissertation Title: "Dynamic Aspects of Entrepreneurial Behavior"

Resaech Interests

I am a specialist in structural microeconometrics and numerical dynamic programming. I have conducted research on the development and implementation of techniques to solve and estimate models of intertemporal economic behavior involving sequential decision making over time and under uncertainty - including dynamic games. In my applied work I have focused various dynamic aspects of economic behavior including: strategic investment behavior of duopoly firms, entrepreneurial savings, human capital accumulation, job-creation and firm growth, household car ownership and driving decisions, and residential and work location choices.

Membership of Research Groups

I recently established and heads the Centre for Computational Economics (CCE) that focus on the computational challenges in economics generally, but pay particular emphasis to research on dynamic games and dynamic programming models as well as their empirical applications to wide range of fields. I am also affiliated with Centre for Applied Microeconometrics (CAM)
and Economic Policy Reseach Unit (EPRU)
at the University of Copenhagen
