Marian Fink has been working as a research staff member in the WIFO Research Group "Labour Market, 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. As part of the microsimulation team, 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.
