I am a Postdoctoral Research Associate in Experimental Political Economy at the University of Pittsburgh (link). I have a PhD in Political Science from University of Pittsburgh (2020/2021), and a Master of Economics from University of Bergen, Norway.  My research focuses on deliberation and consensus-building within legislative and policy-making institutions. I am currently working on a several laboratory experiments and a book on the origins and future of Swedish consensus politics. I am a big fan of Elinor Ostrom, and, along with the Swedish economist Knut Wicksell, her work inspires my research. My CV is  here: Pronin_Kira_CVMar2022.

I also love Jugendstil architecture, so you see a lot of examples on this web site. Most photos were taken in Helsinki, my hometown.
