A Ph.D. in economics from the University of Michigan and currently Associate Director of International Research at the Campaign for Tobacco Free Kids (CTFK) in Washington DC, Dr. Estelle Dauchy leads and participates in tax advocacy research aimed to provide technical assistance to tobacco advocates, policy makers / governments, and media in low and middle countries on the design of effective tobacco tax policies to reduce tobacco use, improve health, and raise revenue.
Prior to joining at CTFK in the fall of 2016, Dr. Dauchy was an Assistant Professor of Economics at the New Economic School in Moscow, Russia. Besides research on tobacco tax policy control, Dr. Dauchy’s research also examines the impact of federal and international tax reforms—or features of tax systems—on various margins of firms’ and individuals’ behavior, including investment choices and innovation activity. She is also increasingly interested in redistribution aspects of the tax system. She has written and published several research and policy papers on these issues, and is a frequent [participant/presenter] in international conferences.
Prior to joining the NES in the fall of 2012, Dr. Dauchy was an Assistant Professor at Peking University HSBC Business School in Shenzhen, China, for two years. She taught a variety of courses at the graduate and undergraduate levels including graduate public finance and public economics, history of economic thought, taxation and business behavior. Dr. Dauchy previously gained three years of valuable policy experience as a senior economist for Ernst & Young, based in Washington D.C.
A native of France, Dr. Dauchy considers herself to be a citizen of the world, having lived and worked in several countries on three continents, traveling to many other countries, and collecting interesting friends, co-authors, and stories along the way.
