Welcome to my home page!

Here you will find some information about me, my courses, as well as some recent research papers. 

I am a Full Professor in the Vancouver School of Economics at UBC in Vancouver, BC where I teach courses in labour economics and empirical economics, at the graduate and undergraduate levels. I moved to UBC in 1999 after teaching for ten years at the Universite de Montreal, in my hometown.

I have three main streams of research. A first stream revolves around wage inequality and its links to labour market institutions and public policies, including higher education policies. A second stream focuses on the economic progress of women, gender equality policies, and gender issues in education. A third stream includes contributions to decomposition methods, namely the widely used DFL reweighting decomposition methodology and the newer RIF (recentered influence function) regression methodology, both published in Econometrica.  

My office is 1003 Buchanan Tower, send me an email ( or reach me at 604-822-3222.
