Viktoria Szenkurök

I am an economist by training, currently pursuing a Ph.D. at the Vienna University of Economics where I also work as a teaching and research assistant (Division of Health Economics and Policy). My research interests lie in the (socio-)economic aspects of health and ageing, especially long-term care. In the course of my Ph.D. I particularly focus on disparities in use and provision of informal and formal long-term care, considering both national and international heterogeneity. Thereby, I take a closer look at the role of specific care policies such as care allowances and other social policies for older adults (e.g. pensions). Furthermore, I am also interested in exploring (determinants of) working conditions in the care and long-term care sector.
