My name is René Karadakic and I am currently a PhD student at the labour economics group of the Centre for Experimental Research on Fairness, Inequality and Rationality which is part of the Department of Economics at the Norwegian School of Economics in Bergen. I hold a M.Sc from Uppsala University, where I graduated in 2018 and a B.Sc from the Vienna University of Economics and Business.
My main interests lie in applied microeconomics with a special focus on health and labour economics. Currently I am working on projects concerning mortality inequality, intergenerational mobility and economics of the family under the advisement of Aline Bütikofer.

Friluftsliv Home


Friluftsliv is a Norwegian expression, popularised by playwright Henrik Ibsen, which could literally be translated to free air life. The meaning of friluftsliv however goes beyond that and is probably better captured by passion or joy for the outdoors. Below is a small selection of lanscape shots from various trail running, hiking and cabin trips, I hope you enjoy them.
