I am a postdoctoral research fellow at the Department of Economics, University of Oxford. My current research projects focus on the roles of gender and family in the labour market, often utilising Danish register data. For example, I test how the employment of task-specific skills and their returns depend on the gender of the worker by exploiting a novel combination of Danish job vacancy data and matched employer-employee register data.
