My current research projects focus on the roles of gender and family in the labour market. By utilising Danish register data, I do research on gender variations in labour market outcomes as well as in responses to policy reforms. For example, in the paper I will present at EEA Virtual 2020, 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. Before commencing my PhD in economics at Copenhagen Business School, I studied both economics and gender studies at the University of Cambridge. I visited the Centre for Economic Performance at the LSE from January to June 2018 and the Department of Economics at Stanford University in February 2020.
