  • In my dissertation “Essays on Locus of Control and the Labor Market” , I analyze the effect of the personality trait locus of control on individual behavior and decision making on the labor market as well as the reverse effect of labor market shocks on locus of control.
  • In my job-market paper “The Independent Women – Locus of Control and Female Labor Force Participation” I concentrate on the role of locus of control in the labor supply equation of married women. The paper will be available shortly.



I expect to complete my dissertation in early 2019 and will be available to the job-market in spring 2019. I will be available for job-interviews at ESPE 2018 in Antwerp, IAREP/SABE 2018 in London and ASSA Annual Meeting 2019 in Atlanta.
