In memory of Pierre Lasserre

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our colleague and very dear friend Pierre Lasserre. Pierre was killed in a skiing accident on the slopes of the Mont Blanc Massif in the French Apls on Monday April 10.

Pierre’s passion and expertise was the study of resource and environmental economics. His research focused on investment, real option values and the rôle of institutions in economics.

His great kindness and compassion as well as his warm smile made him a dear colleague. He was appreciated and admired by all who came into contact with him. We miss you already Pierre.

Our sincerest thoughts go out to his wife, his children, and his family. We share your pain and loss.
