Biographic sketch

(in case you need a paragraph describing me)

"David de la Croix (born 1964, PhD 1992) is Professor of Economics and member of both IRES and CORE at UCLouvain (Belgium). He has taught on a visiting basis at UCLA, Copenhagen, Aix-Marseille, Nanterre, Capetown, Sao Paulo and Rostock. He is the instigator and editor-in-chief of the Journal of Demographic Economics, and was associate editor for the Journal of Economic Dynamics and Control, the Journal of Development Economics, and the Journal of Public Economic Theory. His research interests cover demographic economics, human capital, conflict between generations, and growth. His choice of topics reveals that he is mostly interested in understanding households’ incentives in the present and in the past. Working with 48 co-authors, he has published over 80 research articles (including in journals such as American Economic Review, Journal of Economic Growth and Review of Economic Studies), and a treatise on Economic Growth co-authored with Philippe Michel. He has also written a number of policy briefs addressed to a more general audience. And he has advised 15 doctoral dissertations."
