Main research and teaching areas:

  • Consumption
  • Consumer credits
  • Debt

Current research:

My research focus mainly on how social- and cultural factors affect practices and views on consumer credits and debt in Europe.  The purpose of my research is to understand how young adults understand and use consumer credits, and explain what- and how cultural and institutional factors affect commonalities and differences between young adults’ understanding and usage in Europe. By comparing findings from different European countries the goal is also to explain why there is a difference between European countries in regards to over-indebtedness and consumer credit usage.
