A new building for CREST

All researchers, professors, students and administrative personnel working at CREST are so happy to announce that, starting June 26, we will be doing the exact same old jobs within our new building on the Saclay/Polytechnique Campus (http://crest.science/about#maps-and-directions) !

Jeremy Lise will be the first speaker for the first seminar taking place there, on June 29. Jeremy will present “Multidimensional Skills, Sorting, and Human Capital Accumulation”, jointly written with Fabien Postel-Vinay (who, by the way, was a former CREST researcher).

Among the many good news that accompany this incredible move, we take the opportunity to announce the arrival of our new assistant professors who will join us in September 2017:

  • Roxana Fernandez (PhD, Tilburg) is working in empirical industrial organization, with a particular focus on the effect of entry on competition.
  • Benoît Schmutz (PhD, Aix-Marseille) is working on urban and labor economics, with a special interest on the effect of spatial frictions.

We hope that Roxana and Benoît as well as all our visitors, will enjoy the CREST new environment!
