Workshop: Montreal Applied Microeconomics Research Day


Thursday 21 Feb 2019
From 9AM To 3PM

Organized by Fabian Lange (McGill University, CIRANO and CIREQ), the Montreal Applied Microeconomics Research Day brings together researchers from Montreal for presentations of recent research findings in microeconomics. Each year, this workshop helps strengthen the research network in Montreal and its surroundings.

Matthieu Chemin

A CIRANO Researcher and Fellow since 2016, Matthieu Chemin is Associate Professor in the Department of Economics at McGill University.

Holding a Ph.D. in Economics from the London School of Economics and Political Science, his research focuses on exploring the conditions conducive to economic growth and development, such as the quality of institutions (judicial system), infrastructure (electricity) and markets (credit, insurance, labour). He is particularly interested in small entrepreneurs in less developed countries. For his studies, he uses rigorous micro-econometric techniques on secondary data, or data collected by his field research team.

Sonia Laszlo

A CIRANO Researcher and Fellow since 2007, Sonia Laszlo is Associate Professor in the Department of Economics at McGill University.

Holding a Ph.D. in Economics from the University of Toronto, her research expertise covers many aspects of applied microeconomic analysis in economic development. Specifically, she is currently working in two broad research areas: decision-making under uncertainty (namely concerning technology adoption among subsistence farmers) and the micro-economic effects of social policies and conditions (in the area of education, health and labour markets), with a focus on women.

Sonia Laszlo has conducted her research in Peru, Kenya and in the Caribbean, using laboratory experiments, surveys or randomized controlled trials. She is also a member of the Grupo de Analysis para el Desarrollo (GRADE).

In 2005 she co‐founded and has since been an executive member of the Canadian Development Economics Study Group (CDESG), which groups both academic and policy development economists in Canada.

Lars Vilhuber

Lars Vilhuber has an undergraduate degree in Economics from Universität Bonn, Germany, and a Ph.D. in Economics from Université de Montréal, Montreal, Canada. He has worked in both research and government. He has consulted with government and statistical agencies in Canada and the United States.

His interest in statistical disclosure limitation issues is a consequence of his other research interest: working with highly detailed longitudinally linked data to analyze the effects and causes of mass layoffs, worker mobility, and the dynamics of the local labor market.

He is presently on the faculty of the Department of Economics at Cornell University, a Senior Research Associate at the ILR School at Cornell University, Ithaca, Executive Director of ILR’s Labor Dynamics Institute, and affiliated with the U.S. Census Bureau (Center for Economic Studies, CES).

Over the years, he has also gained extensive expertise on the data needs of economists and other social scientists, having been involved in the creation and maintenance of several data systems designed with analysis, publication, replicability, and maintenance of large-scale code bases in mind.
