Over Mateo Seré

I moved to Belgium three years ago coming from Uruguay. I first pursued a master in Applied Economics at the University of Antwerp and then a Master Research in Economics with focus in Econometrics at the European Center for Advanced Research in Economics and Statistics (ECARES) the economics research center of the Université Libre de Bruxelles (ULB). I started my PhD at the University of Antwerp in 2017 under the supervision of Koen Decancq

My current working paper focus on the subjective well-being of the elderly people and using Finite Mixture Models I try to understand deeper the relationship between subjective well-being and income and how this relationship affects the individual’s retirement. 

I have expertise in using Stata and in addition I program in MatLab and Python.

Other topics of interest are poverty and inequality, redistribution of income, gender inequality, behavioural economics and history of economic thought.
