Ingela Alger

Toulouse School of Economics

Ingela Alger is CNRS Senior Researcher in Economics at Toulouse School of Economics, and a CEPR Research Fellow. She is also Director of the Institute for Advanced Study in Toulouse (IAST). Her research, which has been published in international peer-reviewed journals such as the American Economic Review and Econometrica, focuses on the long run formation of human preferences (motivation), when these are transmitted from generation to generation, and are subject to selection. She is particularly interested in preferences that might explain moral and altruistic behaviours, as well as behaviours within the family. She also organizes seminars and conferences at the intersection between economics and biology. More information at https://ingelaalger.weebly.com/
