Last week, we lost a colleague and a former INFER Board Member. Helena Marques was a professor at the Department of Applied Economics at the University of the Balearic Islands (Spain).
Helena had a Bachelor’ degree in Economics from the University of Coimbra – Portugal (1997), a Master in Economics from the University of Leuven – Belgium (1998), and a PhD in Economics from the University of Newcastle-Upon-Tyne, in the United Kingdom (2004).
Her research work focused on international trade and exchange rate regimes, globalization, labor market and heterogeneous agents, and the economic effects of insularity. In all these areas, she published numerous articles in prestigious peer-reviewed international journals.
She coordinated the activities of the INFER Working Group “International Economics” between 2006 and 2009. Helena was an active INFER Board Member (2007-2009) : she contributed a lot to the internationalization of our network and managed greatly the INFER Workshop Committee.
We will miss the discussions, her sense of initiative and her kindness. Our condolences go to her family.
