About Eva Ranehill


I am a behavioral economist whose research employs laboratory and field experiments and empirical studies with archival register data. The focus of my research is on individual heterogeneity in economic decision making. A large part of my research focuses on behavioral gender gaps—specifically on the robustness of behavioral differences between men and women, what causes such differences, and their economic implications. Lately I have studied how gender preference gaps (and individual heterogeneity, in general) translate into gaps in policy preferences and leadership styles, and how this, in turn, impact the outcomes of individuals, organizations and societies. More broadly, my work has applications to a broad domain of topics related to health, labor, and development economics.
