William Arbour

I am currently a PhD candidate in economics at the University of Toronto. I will join the University of Montreal as an assistant professor in June 2023.

My job market paper studies the effects of cognitive-behavioral therapy on incarcerated offenders using novel micro data. 

My current research agenda focuses on ways to encourage inmates' social reintegration through, for instance, rehabilitation programs and supervised transition. More broadly, I am interested in the economics of crime and education, and labor economics.
