Current projects

Sibling Spill-overs and Education Choice

Considering its immense, life changing consequences, our choice of university education often seems ill-informed. I estimate how siblings influence and inspire each others in their choices, using a unique Swedish data set where identification comes from tie breaking lotteries. I also use this data set to study economic returns to fields of study and how education influences investment and savings decisions. To avoid data-mining pitfalls, the study was pre-registered.

Predicting Replication

I use machine learning to estimate a model that is more accurate than a prediction market at forecasting replication success of lab experiments. While statistical properties of the original paper such as its p-value explain most of the variation, certain experimental design features are also influential. The model could be used as a cheap tool to aid researchers in evaluating the necessity of running replications ex ante.

Social Sciences Replication Project

We replicate 21 experimental studies in the social sciences published in Nature and Science in 2010-2015. As in our previous studies, we also run prediction markets to elicit peer beliefs.

Homophily and Information Avoidance

There is a vast literature in Psychology and Economics about how we learn selectively, searching for ways to confirm our priors and biases. Using economic theory and an experiment, I aim to study how this type of motivated reasoning affects network formation; who we choose to follow and be friends with.
