My name is Emre Sarı

Hello! I'm a researcher in Health Economics at the NORCE Norwegian Research Centre, with a PhD in social sciences focusing on health economics. My background in economics and finance has been integral to my work in the multigenerational transmission of health and health behaviors.

My Journey

Starting in Istanbul, Türkiye, I worked in various roles at KPMG, Türk Telekom, and Unilever. Later, I pursued my PhD in Health Economics at UiT The Arctic University of Norway, where I developed my dissertation on the multigenerational transmission of health and health behaviors.


During my PhD studies, I spent time as a visiting candidate at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam and participated in the International Doctoral Courses in Health Economics and Policy at the Swiss Society of Health Economics.

My Work

My research papers, published in various journals, cover topics like the social and psychological effects of the COVID-19 pandemic in Turkey, the association between neighborhood health behaviors and body-mass index in Northern Norway, and the transgenerational health effects of in utero exposure to economic hardship.

Teaching and Certificates

I've taught economics at bachelor, master, and PhD levels, and have completed a 200-hour course in Teaching and Learning in Higher Education for PhD Fellows at UiT.

Awards & Grants

My work has received recognition including awards and grants from the Arctic Frontiers Science Conference and from organizations like High North Population Studies and the Faculty of Biosciences, Fisheries, and Economics at UiT.
