Applied microeconomics, financial economics

Short bio

Niklas joined the research division in January 2020. Prior to joining the Riksbank, he spent three years as a post-doctoral researcher at the Department of Finance/Swedish House of Finance at the Stockholm School of Economics. He holds a B.Sc. and a Ph.D. in economics from the Stockholm School of Economics.

Most of Niklas' research uses large-scale registry data on individuals, firms, and banks to address questions in applied microeconomics and financial economics. His current projects deal with topics such as the heterogeneous income effects of monetary policy shocks, inter-firm liquidity risk sharing using trade credit, and the effects of financial constraints on firms' price-setting behavior.
