Gaëlle Simard-Duplain

I am a PhD candidate at the Vancouver School of Economics, University of British Columbia. My fields of interest are Labour Economics, Family Economics, and Public Economics.

In my job market paper, I study the effect of divorce and divorce risk on the labour supply of women at different points in their life-cycle. For this work, I helped create a new linkage between the Longitudinal and International Study of Adults (LISA) and the tax records of survey respondents’ past and present family members. I have also used this data to study intergenerational income mobility in Canada.

I am on the job market this year, and will be available for interviews at the 2018 CEEE (Toronto) and at the 2019 AEA/ASSA meetings (Atlanta).
