The Luxembourg Statistical Society would like to invite you to the talk by Prof. Conchita d’Ambrosio on “Maternal depression and child human capital: an instrumental approach”. The talk will take place on Friday 12th November at 12:30 PM and will be hosted online.
Prof. Conchita d’Ambrosio has been Professor of Economics at the University of Luxembourg since 2013. Before joining the University of Luxembourg, Prof. D’Ambrosio was Associate Professor of Economics at the University of Milano-Biococca. Her research mainly focuses on income and wealth distributions, deprivation, polarization and social exclusion
In her talk Prof. D’Ambrosio will address the causal relationship between maternal depression and child human capital using UK cohort data. The study exploits conditionally exogenous variation in mothers’ genomes in an instrumental-variable approach and describes the conditions under which mother’s genetic variants can be used as valid instruments.
