A CIRANO Researcher and Fellow since 2007, Sonia Laszlo is Associate Professor in the Department of Economics at McGill University.
Holding a Ph.D. in Economics from the University of Toronto, her research expertise covers many aspects of applied microeconomic analysis in economic development. Specifically, she is currently working in two broad research areas: decision-making under uncertainty (namely concerning technology adoption among subsistence farmers) and the micro-economic effects of social policies and conditions (in the area of education, health and labour markets), with a focus on women.
Sonia Laszlo has conducted her research in Peru, Kenya and in the Caribbean, using laboratory experiments, surveys or randomized controlled trials. She is also a member of the Grupo de Analysis para el Desarrollo (GRADE).
In 2005 she co‐founded and has since been an executive member of the Canadian Development Economics Study Group (CDESG), which groups both academic and policy development economists in Canada.
