Aurélia Tison is currently doing a PhD in Health Economics at the Aix Marseille School of Economics-unit Sesstim under the supervision of Bruno Ventelou and Alain Paraponaris.
Her research focuses on people’s decisions on the labor market in a context of both health and economic uncertainty. In the frame of a French National project, she is analyzing the financial situation of self-employed workers two years after a cancer and their return to work. She intends to extend the research to the survival of their firms.
At the CHDS, she works under the supervision of James K. Hammitt on people’s behaviors toward financial risk after a health shock. Their research is theoretical and empirical, mainly based on American data.
She earned a B.A of Economics and Management at the University Paris-Dauphine (France) with a one year exchange at the University of Goethe (Germany). In parallel, she also obtained a B.A in History at the University Paris-Nanterre. Then, she focused on health by doing a master of Health Economics at the University Paris-Dauphine and by working as an intern at the center for cancer research “Institut Curie”. She is been a laureate of the French Concours “Inventez 2020” for her contribution on women and entrepreneurship.
