My name is Marie Beigelman. I am PhD candidate in Economics at the University of Barcelona, with research interest at the intersection of Health Economics, Gender Inequality and Economic History. My thesis explores the role of macro-level traumatic events on family dynamics and health outcomes.
For my job market paper, I investigate the Intergenerational Impact of Labor Coercion in the context of Slavery in the French West Indies. I use never-yet digitized historical records on enslaved individuals and their descendants over more than three generations to understand the role that family transmission plays in labor coercion’s persistent impact.
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.
