Based on funding from Statistics Denmark, Filipe Vieira will be my next PhD student, enrolled in the Pension Research Centre (PeRCent) at the Department of Economics at CBS.
Filipe’s research will provide insights into household consumption/saving decisions in terms of debt and wealth accumulation, focusing on the role of the occupational pension system.
Until beginning his PhD project, Filipe has worked as my research assistant at PeRCent.
Filipe is a Portuguese citizen, born in 1989. He graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Economics from Nova School of Business and Economics in 2012, and he earned his master’s degree in Advanced Economics and Finance from Copenhagen Business School (CBS) in 2015.
Filipe’s research interest lies in the field of macroeconomics and household economics, with a special focus on pension system design and topics surrounding public/private debt sustainability and optimality.
He has been engaged in projects dealing with issues of pension systems and ageing populations, and fiscal sustainability issues of government budgets and public debt.
