Hi, my name is Viet. I'm an Economist at the Brookfield Institute. I graduated from the University of British Columbia and the London School of Economics in Economics, focusing on Applied Microeconomics. I love creating communities, researching Economics, and working towards bettering lives for LGBTQ+ individuals. Most recently, I looked into how firms treat you differently depending on how big your network is.
I've worked internationally, from Bolivia, to Vietnam, to Canada; from researching urbanization in Eastern Bolivia to establishing an experimental youth summer camp, consulting for a billion dollar company, to sitting on the Board of Directors for the largest student society in Canada. I got to work with some amazing individuals. I also did research on the discrimination in the Economics Job Market.
I also work with Equaldex, a global database on LGBTQ+ issues (the data we collected have been used by the UN , the World Economic Forum, Vox, amongst others.)
Let me know if you want to chat.
