Aino-Maija received her PhD degree in economics from Uppsala University in 2018. Her thesis studied role model effects from same-gender teachers in educational preferences, child care access and health outcomes for children, and incentives for mothers to return to work between births. Her research at SOFI will mainly focus on gender-segregation in education and the impacts of social parents on child outcomes.

Welcome, Aino-Maija!
