About Lisa Norrgren
I am a PhD student in economics with PhD Annika Lindskog, Professor Olof Johansson-Stenman, and Professor Peter Martinsson as my supervisors.
My main research interest is behavioural economics applied on health and educational choices. In my thesis, I investigate how time preferences (the relative weight an individual give to future utility compared to present utility) affects individual decision-making. I specifically focus on decisions to invest in one's health and to follow medical treatments. I am also interested in the transmission of preferences from parents to children, and how this affects real-life outcomes, such as educational attainment and future earnings.
