Bruno Larue

I see myself as an applied microeconomist specialized in international trade and agricultural economics. I got my B.Sc. from McGill U. in agricultural economics in 1983 and my PhD from the department of economics at Iowa State U in 1988. I began my academic career at the U. of Guelph in Ontario in 1988. I moved to Laval U. in 1991 and I am still there! Along the way, I have been editor of the Canadian J. of Agricultural Economics, President of the Canadian Agricultural Economics Society and on the editorial board of the Canadian J. of Agricultural Economics and Agribusiness. I have been the coordinator of the research network on the "Structure and Performance of Agriculture and Agri-products Industry". I have also been the director of a research center, the Center for Research on the Economics of Agri-food (CREA) at Laval University that merged with two other centers to become the Center for Research on the economics of the Environment, Agri-food, Transports and Energy (CREATE). Since 2003, I have had the privilege of being the Canada Research Chair in International Agri-food Trade.
