A Researcher and Fellow since 2004, Luc Godbout is Full Professor at the Department of Taxation of the Université de Sherbrooke. He is also Director of the Department of Taxation and holds the Chaire de recherche en fiscalité et en finances publiques at the Université de Sherbrooke.
Holding a Ph.D. in Public Law from University Aix-Marseille III, he has a strong interest in comparative taxation, and his recent research has focused on the tax structure in determining economic growth, the impact of an aging population on public finances, and the financing of public pension plans.
His expertise has called him to advise the Government of Quebec, whether it is the Expert Panel on the Future of the Pension System or more recently the Quebec Taxation Review Commission, which he has chaired.
