Suzanne Bellue obtained her dual master’s degree in Economics at the Paris Dauphine University, France, and at the Pontifical Catholic University of Chile. Her master’s thesis focused on the impact of desegregation on dropout rates and job opportunities in the United States. Before joining the CDSE, she was a research associate at J-PAL, where she took part in several research projects on education, public procurement, and water access. She has also worked as a teaching assistant in Macroeconomics and Public Economics. Her main research interests are family-macroeconomics, development, and labor economics. In her job market paper, she studies persistent spatial segregation and intergenerational mobility, when parents have imperfect information about skill formation and learn through social interactions.
