About Eva Ranehill

I am a behavioral economist whose research
employs laboratory and field experiments and empirical studies with archival register data. A large part of my research has focused on behavioral gender gaps—specifically on the robustness of behavioral differences between men and women, what causes such differences, and their economic implications. My current research focuses more on the drivers of gender gaps in the labor market. In this work I study, for example, gender discrimination in the academic hiring process, whether, and if so how, male majority environments discourage female entry and female leadership, and whether women may be less effective leaders because they receive less support from followers. I also
work on topics in health and environmental economics.
