Événement en-ligne

Wednesday 3 Jun 2020
From 10AM To 12PM

CIRANO invited its partners on June 3, 2020 to an exclusive Human Resources Forum on the theme of work reorganization in a pandemic context (telework, mental health in times of pandemic, performance, labour market).

Three CIRANO Researchers, Sylvie St-Onge, Maude Boulet and Fabian Lange, presented their past and current research.

A period of exchange of ideas, experiences and knowledge between CIRANO's partners and the researchers was followed by a brainstorming session that confirmed CIRANO's position as a gathering place that facilitates collaboration between research and the business world.

Fabian Lange

Fabian Lange completed his Ph.D. in economics at the University of Chicago in 2004 and subsequently joined the Department of Economics at Yale University as an Assistant Professor. In 2010, he was promoted to Associate Professor at Yale. He joined the economics department at McGill University in 2012. Fabian held visiting positions at the University of Chicago, Oberlin College, and the University of Michigan.

Fabian pursues interests in population and health economics. In population economics, he studied the link between schooling and fertility decisions. He has published work on the trade-offs between increased fertility and education (the quantity-quality model) using data sources from the historical American South. In health economics, he studies the determinants of the socio-economic gradient in health. He asks what role information processing, cognitive ability, and education play in generating socio-economic gradients in health? Further, he develops and estimates models of health dynamics and uses these to study the socio-economic gradient in health.

In labor economics, his research interests concern how workers careers are shaped by processes of information revelation. In particular, he studies the role of employer learning in generating earnings inequality as individuals age. He received the H. G. Lewis prize 2008 and the IZA Young Labor Economist Award for his work in this area. He also studies stigma due to prolonged unemployment and its implications for optimal unemployment insurance schemes.
