About me

I am a researcher at Kraks Fond – Institute for Urban Economic Research and a PhD student at the University of Copenhagen. The objective of my PhD project is to get a comprehensive understanding of the interplay between urbanisation, mobility and educational choices at different stages of a person’s life-cycle. The aim is twofold: a) to study how geographical location of education institutions affect people’s educational choices and the local economy, b) to examine the relationship between educational choices and geographical mobility.
