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.
