Brigitte Hochmuth is a PhD candidate in Macroeconomics at the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg and a Junior Fellow at the Institute for Advances Studies Vienna. She holds a Bachelor's degree from the Vienna University of Economics and Business Administration and a Masters from the University of Innsbruck. She completed research visits at Deutsche Bundesbank, the European Commission and NYU Abu Dhabi. Her research focuses on macro- and labor economics as well as applied econometrics. My research interests cover Macroeconomics, especially Macro Labor and Open Economy Macro, as well as Applied Econometrics. I work on the macroeconomic effects of labor market policies (such as short-time work and reforms of the unemployment benefit system) in closed and open economies. Currently, I also work on the interaction of financial frictions and the labor market.
