Biography

Erik is a Research Assistant who works with the Policy Innovation Research Unit. After an undergraduate MA (Hons) in Philosophy at the University of Glasgow, they worked as a software engineer in the private sector, gaining expertise in full-stack web application development, agile project management, and product design. After completing a Master of Public Health at the University of Glasgow, Erik is currently finishing a PhD on applying instrumental variable methods to estimate causal effects of income on health.

Erik’s research has mainly focused on understanding how socioeconomic conditions and economic policy influence health and health inequalities. Other interests include causal inference methods, simulation modelling, policy evaluation, and evidence synthesis. Given their interdisciplinary background, Erik is particularly passionate about facilitating open research and reproducibility by improving software engineering practices within academia.
