Teferi Mergo, an assistant professor in the Department of Economics and at St. Paul's, was appointed a Fellow of the Global Labor Organization (GLO). GLO is a non-partisan, independent organization that serves as an international network and virtual platform for researchers and policy makers.
Faculty and PhD students gathered to celebrate the holidays before the winter break. As it turns out, our department's talented economists are also talented musicians. Attendees enjoyed lively performances by Professor Insley, Professor Forand, Professor Parker, Professor Chaussé and Professor Rybczynski.
Thanks to Economics Alumnus Michael Ashmore (BA Honours in Economics) for visiting us at the University of Waterloo. Michael currently works in New York for OMERS Capital Markets. He was named by Chief Investment Officer Magazine to their 40 Under 40 list of people who show great passion for their work and are potential game changers of the future. We are always very happy to hear from our alumni and learn how their education has helped them along their career path.
