Ilse Lindenlaub

Associate Professor of Economics


Ilse Lindenlaub is an Associate Professor at the Department of Economics at Yale University. She is also a Faculty Research Fellow of the National Bureau of Economic Research and a Research Affiliate at the Center for Economic and Policy Research. Lindenlaub specializes in macroeconomics and labor economics. She develops economic theory and quantitative applications to gain insights into the allocation of workers to firms in the labor market and of spouses in the marriage market; and to understand the effect of this sorting on wage and income inequality, and how inequality changes over time and space, as well as over the business cycle. Her current research focus on the implications of equilibrium linkages between the labor market and the marriage market; on the role of spatial sorting in spatial inequality; and on the analysis of multi-dimensional sorting.
