Dr. Nicole Fortin, UBC

Dr. Nicole Fortin is a Full Professor in the Vancouver School of Economics at UBC in Vancouver, BC where she teaches courses in labour economics and empirical economics, at the graduate and undergraduate levels. 

She has three main streams of research. A first stream revolves around wage inequality and its links to labour market institutions and public policies, including higher education policies. A second stream focuses on the economic progress of women, gender equality policies, and gender issues in education. A third stream includes contributions to decomposition methods, namely the widely used DFL reweighting decomposition methodology and the newer RIF (recentered influence function) regression methodology, both published in Econometrica.
