About me

My name is Marie Beigelman. I am a second-year PhD candidate in Economics at the University of Barcelona. I am an applied economist with research interests at the intersection of Health Economics, Household Economics and Economic History.

My thesis explores the impact of traumatic events on health and family dynamics. For my job market paper, I investigate how historical traumas affect descendants of survivors generations later, and isolate the specific role of families in trauma-related transmission.

I graduated from the French “Grande Ecole” ENSAE Paristech in Statistical Engineering. I also hold a Master in Public Policy and Development from the Paris School of Economics.
