Alexander P. Hansak

Hello! Welcome to my personal website. I am a PhD student at the Vienna Graduate School of Economics and I am on the academic job market in 2022-23.

I am a macroeconomist working on topics which are related to various dimensions of inequality and their interaction with the macroeconomy and government policies. To this end, I mainly employ computational methods and quantitative models with heterogeneous agents.

Here is my CV and my research. You can also visit my student page at VGSE.
