Lunch and Learn with Klara Peter (Economics, UNC)

November 1, 2016 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm

This presentation is based on Dr. Klara Peter’s co-authored study on the long-term health effects of the early-life shocks caused by the Nazi occupation of the Soviet Union during WWII. The study looks at individuals who, at the time of the war, were in utero or in their early childhood. The results help explain the developments affecting late-life wellbeing of the survivors, such as mortality, certain health condition, depression, as well as subjective health assessments and life satisfaction.

Klara Peter is Associate Professor in the UNC Department of Economics. She serves as a principal investigator for the Russia Longitudinal Monitoring Survey (RLMS) at the Carolina Population Center. Her research focuses on labor economics, economic development, and public policy, and has been supported by grants from the National Science Foundation, the World Bank, and others.

Lunch and Learn is an interactive lecture series that provides CSEEES faculty affiliates the opportunity to showcase their current research. The lectures are open to all interested faculty, students, staff and community members. Lunch is provided per timely RSVP.
