Mariia Kovaleva Research Teaching CV
Mariia Kovaleva

I am a PhD Candidate at ECARES, Université Libre de Bruxelles.

I specialize in the quantitative modeling of individual behavior across a wide range of topics, including marriage markets, labor supply, fertility, human capital and retirement.

I am also actively advancing the integration of family economics with psychological insights. I focus on how cognitive processes and psychological traits influence intra-household decision-making and policy responsiveness.

My research agenda is supported by a grant from the FRS - FNRS. You can find my CV here.
