Raphael Zerbato
PhD student in economics

In his fourth year of doctoral studies at HEC Montréal in the Economics Department under the supervision of professors Georges Dionne, François Bellavance and Decio Coviello, Raphael is specializing in fraud detection, mixing techniques from machine learning with economic models. The PhD is done in collaboration with a Canadian insurance company. Raphael sees a great complementarity between the predictive power of data science models and the empirical applications of economics. His previous research focused on operational risk management in the US insurance industry, again under the direction of Prof. Dionne, for the Canada Research Chair in Risk Management. Raphael has also worked with IFAD, a UN fund specializing in rural economic development.
