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.
