I am an Economics Ph.D. candidate at the Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM) specializing in Health Economics, Computational Methods and Applied Macroeconomics. I am currently completing my thesis, which uses theory and computational methods to study the demand and predict policy outcomes in a public health care environment. Since 2013, I have been conducting policy-oriented research at the Leonard D. Schaeffer Center for Health Policy and Economics at the University of Southern California.
Between 2009 and 2012, my work has been funded by the Vanier Scholarship, awarded by the Canada Graduate Scholarship program. During the same period, I assisted former Prime Minister of Quebec Bernard Landry in developing a new course (ECO1061 – Quebec’s Economy) and worked as a teaching assistant for two Ph.D. courses (ECO9015 – Dynamic Analysis Methods and ECO9001 – Avanced Microeconomics II). In 2011, I was among 360 young scholars selected internationally to meet Nobel prize laureates at the Lindau Meeting on Economic Science.
