Biographic sketch

(in case you need a paragraph describing me)

"David de la Croix (born 1964, PhD 1992) is Professor of Economics at UCLouvain (Belgium). He has taught on a visiting basis at UCLA, Copenhagen, Aix-Marseille, Nanterre, Capetown, Sao Paulo, Taipei 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 and growth in a historical context (see youtube), and conflict between generations. His choice of topics reveals that he is mostly interested in understanding households’ incentives in the present and in the past. Working with 49 co-authors, he has published over 80 research articles (including in journals such as the American Economic Review, the Quarterly Journal of Economics, 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 19 doctoral dissertations."
