Marian Fink has been working as an Economist in the WIFO Research Group "Labour Economics, Income and Social Security" since
2014. His research focusses on the empirical analysis of labour market and social policy, income distribution and the redistributive
role of the state, among others addressing the relationship between the design of the unemployment insurance system and its
impact on the unemployment duration and re-entry and the distributional effects of economic and tax policy measures. His work
also includes regular analyses of the gender pay gap. He is also involved in the development and application of static and
dynamic microsimulation models. His projects include studies and evaluations at the regional, national and European level.
In the FairTax project funded by the EU Research and Innovation programme Horizon 2020, he used microsimulation to examine
the gender-specific effects of changes in tax bases, rates and units in selected EU member countries. After studying Economics
at the University of Vienna (Magister) and before joining WIFO, he worked at the National Research Network The Austrian Center
for Labor Economics and the Analysis of the Welfare State at the Institute for Advanced Studies (IHS), the University of Vienna
and the University of Linz, where he is currently finishing the PhD Programme in Economics.
