Eva M. Sierminska is a Research Fellow and head of the Graduate Studies Program at the Luxembourg Institute of Socio-Economic Research (LISER, formerly CEPS/INSTEAD). She received her PhD in Economics from Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, MD. She worked at the Bureau of Labor Statistics, Georgetown University and Luxembourg Income Study, where she coordinated building an international wealth data-base (LWS) that served as a building block in international wealth comparison research. She has been a visiting researcher at the San Francisco Federal Reserve Board, DIW Berlin, IZA and INED in Paris. She is a member of the ECB run Household Finance and Consumption Network (HFCN) and the OECD Expert Group on micro statistics on household, income, consumption and wealth.

Her current research interests include a broad range of topics in labor and population economics. She has published papers on cross-country and demographic differences in wealth portfolios, income and wealth distribution, measurement of inequality and well-being and methodological issues in cross-country wealth analysis, as well as employment and job market flows. She has also worked on labor force participation and welfare recipiency of the elderly and immigrants, and the differential effect of social benefits in an international context. Her recent studies concern differential wealth trajectories and the effect of wealth, risk and other personality traits on labor market outcomes.
