Emilia Tjernström

I am a Senior Research Fellow at Monash University's Centre for Development Economics and Sustainability


My research draws on insights from behavioral economics and employs econometrics, field-, and lab-in-the-field experiments to examine a variety of topics in development economics

I also think a lot about heterogeneity: how it shapes the success and optimal design of public policy, and how heterogeneous returns affect individual decision-making


May 27, 2024 I am looking forward to presenting “Selection and Heterogeneity in the Returns to Migration” at the 2024 Africa Meeting of the Econometric Society
