Senior Lecturer Economics
Economics School of Culture and Society

Since the autumn of 2019, I work full time at Högskolan Dalarna. Before that I worked with research at VTI, the Swedish National Road and Transport Research Institute.  I have also worked with accounting, with nature-based tourism, at a County Administrative Board and in a government inquiry. 


I have a PhD in environmental economics from the University of Gothenburg. In my research, I now work with issues related to the formulation of environmental policy. This includes socio-economic analysis as a basis for decision making as well as incentives and the design of policy instruments.

My main research interests are:

Regulatory governance, Cost-benefit analysis, External cost of air pollution, Management of common property resources, Behavioral economics, Willingness to pay studies


2024 - 2026, research on crises management in a project initiated by Studieförbundet Näringsliv och Samhälle (SNS).
