recent research papers.
I am a Full
Professor in the Department of Economics at UBC in Vancouver,
BC where I teach courses in labour economics and empirical
economics, at the graduate and undergraduate level. My research
interests revolve around two themes: wage inequality and its
links to labour market institutions and public policies,
including higher education policies on the one hand, and the
economic progress of women, gender equality policies, gender
issues on the other.
originally from Montréal, Québec and I obtained my Ph.D. in
Economics from UBC in 1988. I moved back to UBC in 1999 after
teaching for 10 years at the Université de Montréal.
