Anna Dreber Almenberg

I am honored and excited about becoming a DNRF board member. I believe that the work of the DNRF is very important, and I am eager to contribute to it as a board member by advancing the aim of the foundation: to fund outstanding basic research that will strengthen the development of Danish research in all research fields. I look forward to learning more about and discussing the research being done in Denmark.

I am a professor of economics at the Stockholm School of Economics, mainly working in behavioral economics and meta science, with a focus on how to improve the credibility of scientific results. My work is largely interdisciplinary, working with researchers in, for example, psychology, anthropology, medicine and neuroscience. I have substantial experience evaluating research applications from international, national, and private research foundations.
