Assistant Professor

Miriam is an assistant professor at the Department of Economics of the University of Copenhagen. She is also an IZA Research Affiliate, as well as part of the HCEO network. She obtained my Ph.D. from the University of Chicago.

Miriam is interested in the origins and consequences of human inequality, with research at the intersection of labor economics and economics of education that also draws on personality economics and micro-econometric techniques.

Her current research, as well as her stay at UCSB, is generously funded by a MOBILEX grant, awarded by a cooperation of the Marie Curie Program under FP7 (European Commission) and the Danish Council for Independent Research. In this research project, she studies the role of skills and parents in explaining occupational sorting, education, and wages.
