About Randi Hjalmarsson

Randi Hjalmarsson received her PhD in economics from Yale University in 2005. She was an Assistant Professor of Economics at the University of Maryland, School of Public Policy from 2005 to 2009, a lecturer and Professor at Queen Mary University of London from 2010-2013. She has since settled in Sweden, and is currently Professor of Economics at the University of Gothenburg.

She has done extensive research on the economics of crime and the criminal justice system. Her current research emphasizes (i) the determinants of crime, including education, military service and the role of the family, neighborhood and peers), (ii) the impact of jury composition on trial verdicts and sentences and the dynamics of jury decision making, and (iii) racial biases in the criminal justice system. Previously, she has studied the effects of prison, the death penalty, and gun shows on crime. Her work has been published in leading academic journals including the Quarterly Journal of Economics, Review of Economics and Statistics, and The Economic Journal. Her research has been funded, in part, by grants from the National Science Foundation and the Swedish Research Council's Distinguished Young Researchers Program.
