Silvia Salazar is an applied micro-econometric researcher specialised in development economics, gender and ethnic inequality as well as public policy. She obtained her PhD at the Paris School of Economics and she has previously held academic and teaching positions at the University of Paris 1 – Panthéon Sorbonne, the University of Paris 13 and the Dom Bosco Catholic University. She has presented her research at numerous international conferences and workshops.

Her research focuses on the analysis of household well-being and consumption levels. She analyses the factors affecting household welfare such as monetary expenditures and time consumption in leisure activities and domestic production. A large part of this research concentrates on how public policies affect income allocation and time distribution.

Silvia also has research experience in income inequalities, gender and Indigenous discrimination in the labour market. The specificity of her work lies in incorporation of the time dimension as well as in the utilisation of original and innovative econometric techniques in the study of well-being and public policies.
