Personal details

Eva Six joined the research institute ‘Economics of Inequality’ (INEQ) in May 2019 as a research assistant (prae-doc). After her Bachelor's studies in Economics (WU Vienna) and International Development (University of Vienna), she completed her Master's degree in Economics at WU. Previously, she has worked at the Institute for Advanced Studies (IHS) in the field of Health Economics and Policy. In her master's thesis, she conducted a microsimulation of the Austrian policy measure "Family Bonus Plus" and analysed its impact on the public budget, income distribution and labour supply. This work was awarded the Social Policy Science Prize of the Ministry of Social Affairs (SoWiSo) in 2019. As part of her dissertation, Eva is working on social mobility and its relation to associated influencing factors, such as health, wealth and family environment. She is also working on other topics such as the distribution of paid and unpaid work, challenges of an eco-social tax reform and microsimulations of the Austrian tax-benefit-system.
