Emma von Essen, PhD Student
I have been a PhD student at the Department of Economics since September 2006. I have focused on Microeconomics, specializing in empirical Behavioral economics. My interest is the determinants of individual differences in economic behavior in varying contexts. I have designed and conducted a broad series of empirical studies using methods ranging from lab and field-experiments to random sample surveys.
