Josue Ortega

I am a Lecturer in Economics at the University of Essex. 

I completed my PhD with Hervé Moulin at the University of Glasgow and my MSc at the Vienna Institute for Advanced Studies. I was a visiting scholar at Columbia University hosted by Yeon-Koo Che during the autumn semester of 2016. 

My main area of research uses economic theory to understand social integration. It has been covered by scientific outlets like the MIT Technology Review, New Scientist, and Marginal Revolution, and international press like The Financial Times and The Times.
