Bengt Söderlund

I am a Postdoc at the University of Virginia Department of Economics. I received my PhD from the Stockholm School of Economics in June 2019.

My main field of research is empirical trade. I am primarily interested in understanding how geography and institutions shape trade patterns and economic development.

I will be attending the 2019 EEA meeting in Rotterdam and the 2020 ASSA meeting in San Diego as a first time Job Market candidate.
