FAIR celebrates International Women's Day

On today’s International Women’s Day, we celebrate our community of female researchers! Today we recognize women's social, economic, cultural, and political achievements and raise awareness about gender equality and women's rights.


Aline Bütikofer


My work primarily measures the distributional effects of policies. That means I study whether poor or rich people benefit more from changes in education, health, or environmental regulations and I investigate what policies are best suited to reduce inequality.


Ranveig Falch

Postdoctoral Fellow

My primary field of research is behavioral economics, where I focus on issues such as gender discrimination, human capital investment, and inequality acceptance. I implement experiments in controlled laboratory or field settings with nationally representative samples.


Sissel Jensen


My research aims to provide a better understanding of the causal pathways behind the gender wage gap and to suggest changes in firms’ policies and management practices that can diminish gender differences in career advancement.


Siri Isaksson

Assistant Professor

I study how gender differences in everyday decision-making affect the differential labor market success of men and women. I have documented systematic differences in how women and men seek advice, seek revenge, and claim credit for their contributions to successful group work.


Julia Zhu

Postdoctoral Fellow

I am an applied microeconomist and my work investigates the causes and consequences of high-skilled immigration, labor market institutions, immigrant workers, climate change and migration, and attitude formation toward immigrants and racial minorities.


Heidi Thysen

Assistant Professor

I study how people’s biases affect their decision-making process. My work seeks to understand how people interpret data and make choices based on their worldviews. Ultimately, I hope to provide insights that can inform policy and help individuals make better decisions.
