My name is Elena Ashtari Tafti,

I am an applied microeconomist working on topics at the intersection of innovation, health, and personnel economics. 

In September 2023 I joined the Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich as an Assistant Professor in Economics. 

I received a PhD in Economics in 2023 from University College London (UCL). 

I am a Ph.D. Scholar at the Institute of Fiscal Studies (IFS) and the Centre for Microdata Methods and Practice (CeMMAP).
