Nicole Fortin has a Ph.D. in economics from the University of British Columbia, where she is associate professor in the Vancouver School of Economics.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.
