Anna received her PhD in Economics from the University of Washington, Seattle in 2008. Her dissertation focused on the effect of competition on the gender wage gap, and the estimation of wage and productivity gaps. She spent several years working at the Labor Project of the CEU, gaining experience in working with large datasets. She started working at the Institute of Economics (Hungarian Academy of Sciences) in 2008, where she is currently a research fellow in the Education and Labor Market Group. She continues to focus on gender-related topics (family policies and maternal labor supply, the gender wage gap and its causes, the costs of childbearing, psychological differences, and discrimination), as well as more general labor market issues (productivity at the firm and individual level, wage differentials, occupational allocation). She has taught standard economics courses and a course titled Gender and Race in the Labor Market, developed for ELTE University. She is also a founding member of the Virtual Research Collaboration on Gender and Family in the Labor Market, whose goal is to bring together researchers from the CEE region who are working on similar topics through virtual collaboration and the organization of workshops.
