Sergio Ocampo Díaz
I am an Assistant Professor of Economics at Western University in London, Ontario.
I hold a Ph.D. in economics from the University of Minnesota.
My research interests are macroeconomic theory and heterogeneous agent macroeconomics.
I am co-PI in the SSHRC Insight Development Grant "Wealth Patterns and Taxation" joint with Rory McGee (CAD 63 thousand, 2022-2024). I am also a project participant of the RCN-funded project "Make Taxation Fair" (FRIPRO, NOK 11.8 million, 2021-2026).
I am part of the Grupo de Economía Laboral (GEL) of the Red de Investigadores.
On the teaching tab you will find the syllabi of the courses I have taught, as well as additional materials for the math camp and stochastic calculus courses.
