So long, Carine

  • Tribute to

Carine Nourry, Director of the School of Economics of Aix-Marseille, Professor at Aix-Marseille University, passed away on Friday June 7th, 2019.
Carine Nourry was a researcher at Aix-Marseille School of Economics (AMSE), specialising in the topic "growth and fluctuations". As a teacher, she agreed to lead the AMSE Graduate School project in 2014, a project that she designed and implemented, and in which she invested strength, talent and generosity. 
Carine was a student at Aix-Marseille University between 1994 and 1999 and entered Greqam during this period. She obtained her DEA in 1995, defended her thesis in 1999 and then went to the University of Singapore to undertake post-doctoral research. She was later appointed as lecturer at the University of Evry where she remained until 2003. Having qualified as an associate professor that same year, she returned to Greqam as a Professor, a position she held until her death.
Recognised for her scientific and intellectual capacities by researchers, research professors and students, she was also appreciated for her human qualities, empathy and kindness. Others will mention her laughter, so important to her, and her radiant smile. Carine showed exceptional courage in the face of her illness, until the very last moment. 
Our thoughts are with her children, her husband, her family and all those close to her.
