Jakob SogaardUniversity of Copenhagen
I am a Postdoc researcher at Center for Economic Behavior and Inequality (CEBI) at the Department of Economics, University of Copenhagen. During the academic year 2019/20 I am visiting Princeton University as part of my Maria Skłodowska-Curie fellowship. My research interests lie within the core areas of public and labor economics with focus on taxation, labor supply, optimization frictions, income and gender inequality. I work on these topics with a primarily empirical approach using reduced-form and non-parametric methods. I have a past both in and out of academia. After graduating as MSc in Economics in 2011, I started working in the Danish Ministry of Finance and I remained affiliated to the ministry during my PhD studies between 2012-2015. In the Ministry of Finance - and later the Ministry of Taxation, I worked extensively on practical policy evaluation and policy formulation using both empirical methods and economic modelling, before returning to academia in 2018.
