I'm an economist on the faculty at the University of Maryland, College Park. I'm originally from Iceland but came to the US in 2004 to study biostatistics at Johns Hopkins University and then went on to complete a Ph.D. in economics at Yale University.
I study the implications of health and financial shocks on families, and ways to mitigate such shocks, including through research on insurance markets. I'm curious about technology, trust, genetics and health. Enthusiastic to learn about and participate in innovation in financial and insurance products for families in the US and globally.
