Hi, I am Arnstein Aassve (Arnie for short) and I am a Professor at Bocconi University. Until recently I was the Dean of the Undergraduate School. From 2018, I am the director of our PhD program. I am running my second ERC grant: Institutional Family Demography (I-FAMI-D) which started 1st October 2016. Check it out on: https://ifamid.com. I spent last year at University of Wisconsin - Madison (2017/2018). I teach "Quantitative Research Methods" for our international undergraduate students, "Doing Business in Europe" for the World Bachelor in Business (WBB) students, "Population Dynamics and Economics" at the MSc level, and Population Studies at the PhD level - all here at Bocconi. My research interests include Population, Culture and Institutions often in relation to poverty and inequality. I am trained as an economist, but consider myself as a general social science scientist. I favour an inter-disciplinary approach to social issues and that is reflected in my publications I guess.
