Elena Herold

Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich

I am a first-year PhD candidate at the LMU Munich and a Junior Economist at the ifo Institute, where I work for the research group on taxation and fiscal policies. Before joining the Ifo Institute, I interned for UN ESCAP in 2021 and received my M.A. from LMU Munich in 2020. My research interests focus on public and gender economics, particularly on gender inequalities within the household and their long-term impact on female wages. Besides my PhD journey, I am also highly interested in music, and I used to play professional basketball
