Ylva MobergPostdoctoral Researcher

About me

I am a postdoctoral fellow at the Swedish Institute for Social Research (SOFI) at Stockholm University, Sweden.

At SOFI, I conduct research within the GENPARENT project: Revealing Sources of Gendered Parenthood – A multi-method comparative study of the transition to parenthood in same-sex and different-sex couples, which is funded by the European Research Council (ERC).

I defended my dissertation “Gender, Incentives, and the Division of Labor” in June 2017 at the Department of Economics at Uppsala University. My primary fields of interests are applied microeconometrics, labor and family economics, and the economics of gender.

I am affiliated to Uppsala Center for Labor Studies (UCLS) and Uppsala Center for Fiscal Studies (UCFS), and a project researcher at the Institute for Evaluation of Labour Market and Education Policy (IFAU).
