MS in Economics from the University of Iceland, May 2007
BS in Industrial engineering from the University of Iceland, May 2004
My research has mostly focused on pricing and markets on a micro level and issues related to econometrics and compilation of official statistics. In studies on consumer goods markets I have focused on the effects of exchange rate changes on prices and the pass-through of costs in general. In statistics I have covered issues concerning problems and improvements in official price statistics and on the availability of data in todays research environment.
