He joined the IIASA World Population (POP) program at IIASA in 2016, to develop microsimulation models that allow for the projection of population under several socioeconomic dimensions.
His main research interests include demographic projections, microsimulation, human capital, labor force participation, immigration and internal mobility. Before joining IIASA, Dr. Marois was a postdoctoral researcher at the Institute of urbanism of the University of Montreal. From 2008 to 2012, he also worked as a research officer at the Quebec Statistical Institute.
The Wittgenstein Centre aspires to be a world leader in the advancement of demographic methods and their application to the analysis of human capital and population dynamics. In assessing the effects of these forces on long-term human well-being, we combine scientific excellence in a multidisciplinary context with relevance to a global audience. It is a collaboration among the Austrian Academy of Sciences (ÖAW), the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA) and the University of Vienna.
