Hi, I'm Devon.

I am a Postdoctoral Researcher at the University of Zurich. I obtained my PhD in May 2023 from Lund University in Sweden and am originally from Ottawa, Canada. 

My research interests lie at the intersection of health and labour economics, and I have a growing interest in topics related to gender. 

Prior to pursuing graduate studies in economics, I completed a Masters in Demography and Health from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. I then spent several years working in cancer epidemiology at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine and King's College London.

I have a BA in Economics from the University of Utah, where I raced on the cross-country ski team.

Here is a link to my CV

And another to my Google Scholar profile.
