My main research areas are public economics, labor economics and economic inequality. My most recent work is in labor economics, wealth research, and structural modeling of life-cycle labor supply.
My research is driven by the aspiration to understand the determinants of individuals' economic circumstances and to use this knowledge to improve their lives. The labor market as well as tax and transfer policy are some of the most important drivers of individuals' welfare. Naturally, the life-cycle perspective has to be taken into account to avoid short-sighted conclusions.
