My research spans many areas and is mainly empirical in nature. The focus of my current work is on the determinants of child well-being, estpecially the impact of family and pubic policy. I am also currently working on projects investigating the impact of school closures on the spread of Covid-19 and the effects of market-oriented reforms in the education system on teachers.

I am also interested in how governance and accountability in firms and elected assemblies affect choices in the organization. In previous studies I have analyzed the impact of ownership changes and structure on wages and employment decisions in firms. Using data from Swedish municipalities I have studied the effect of political competition and female representation on spending decision.

Current project: Teacher work conditions and mental health; Effects of school closures during the Corona pandemic
