Sarra Ben Yahmed joined the Centre of European Economic Research (ZEW) in September 2014. She is a post-doctoral researcher in ZEW’s Research Department "Labour Markets, Human Resources and Social Policy" and is particularly involved in the Research Area “Changing Labour Markets”.

Her research covers the fields of international trade, labour economics, and development economics. Combining both empirical and theoretical analysis, she has explored different mechanisms through which international trade affects gender wage inequality. She has also addressed questions related to informal employment and gender differences in labour outcomes. More recently, she started to investigate how the task-content of jobs and new work arrangements such as tele-work affect gender inequality in the labour market.

Sarra Ben Yahmed studied economics at the Ecole Normale Supérieure de Cachan, the University Carlos III Madrid, and the University Paris 1 - Paris School of Economics. After graduating, she worked as an intern at the OECD. She holds a PhD from Aix-Marseille University and received the university’s 2013 PhD Thesis Prize. Prior joining ZEW, Sarra Ben Yahmed worked at the Department of Economics of Sciences Po Paris.
