Frederik B. Christensen
Frederik Bjørn Christensen is a PhD student at Copenhagen Business School, Department of Economics, affiliated with PeRCent and financed by Danmarks Nationalbank. He holds an MSc from Aarhus University. In his work, he studies the macroeconomic effects of common welfare arrangements in the context of long-run demographic change and public policy reform. Specifically, he is working on life-cycle models that incorporate agent heterogeneity in order to analyze how public education and pension schemes affect individuals differently across the income distribution. Moreover, he is currently doing research on the merit of differentiating the Danish retirement system to accommodate the fact that certain income groups are overly exposed to both morbidity and early mortality. To this end, he studies models with endogenous income-health gradients and flexible pension systems in order to test how the redistributive properties of social security change when longevity varies systematically with income.
