Fortin Nicole M. Fortin is a Professor of Economics at the University of British Columbia, where she received her Ph.D. She is also a research fellow in the SIIWB program of the Canadian Institute for Advanced Research and a research director at CLSRN.

Her research interests focus on two themes: on the one hand, wage inequality and its links to labour market institutions, higher education policies, and more recently occupational tasks, and on the other hand, issues linked to gender equality, the economic progress of women, and gender role attitudes. Her contributions in applied econometrics, published in Econometrica, comprise the widely used DFL reweighting decomposition methodology and the newer RIF(recentered influence function) regression methodology.

She joined IZA as a Research Fellow in February 2011.
