Stefanie Heidrich is a post-doctoral fellow at the Department of Economics and Statistics. She obtained her Ph.D. from Umeå University in June 2016.
Stefanie's research focuses mainly on how family background and the childhood environment affect children's long run outcomes. Stefanie has for example studied the relationship between parents' and children's average life time incomes, and how long run incomes are affected by moving patterns during childhood. She works both empirically, using register data, as well as with methodological issues using simulation techniques. Stefanie has also worked with theoretical research in the area of optimal taxation.
During the coming years, Stefanie will work on new projects within labor economics. Some of these projects will be related to labor market discrimination and the integration of individuals with immigrant background into the Swedish labor market. She is a member of the Linnaeus University Centre for Discrimation and Integration Studies.
During the academic year 16/17, Stefanie is teaching mathematical economics and microeconomics.
