I am an Assistant Professor at the Department of Economics at the University of Vienna and a Fellow at the Institute for Advanced Studies (IHS). My research interests cover Macroeconomics, especially Macro-Labor, Macro-Finance, and Applied Econometrics. I work on the macroeconomic effects of credit crunches and labor market policies (such as short-time work and reforms of the unemployment benefit system) in closed and open economies.
