MEMBERS (PERMANENT RESEARCHERS):

Olga Alonso Villar
  • General Information
  • Bachelor’s Degree in Mathematics (Universidade de Santiago de Compostela, 1989) and Ph.D. in Economics (Universidad Carlos III de Madrid, 1996). Since 2012, she is Full Professor of Applied Economics at the Universidade de Vigo.
  • Her research focuses on economic inequality: in the level of development of territories, income inequality among individuals, and labor inequalities among different demographic groups. In her first line of research, she has developed models à la Krugman where she deals with firms’ location. She has also proposed several indicators to measure the spatial concentration of economic activity.
  • In her second line of research, she has developed, from an axiomatic point of view, different indexes to measure income inequality. With regard to labor economics, she has proposed several indexes with which to measure either segregation or the well-being that the various demographic groups that comprise society derive from their different positions in the labor market. Her empirical studies focus on labor disparities by gender, race, and immigrant status.
