Gaëlle Simard-Duplain

My fields of interest are Labour Economics, Family Economics, and Public Economics.

In my research, I have studied the effect of divorce and divorce risk on the labour supply of women. 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 received my PhD from the Vancouver School of Economics, University of British Columbia.
