Séverine Gaille is Assistant Professor in Actuarial Science at the University of Lausanne, Switzerland. Besides a PhD in Actuarial Science, she has a Certificate in Population Study from the University of Geneva, Switzerland. Her research focuses on longevity risk and mortality modeling, looking for more efficient models in mortality projections. She is also interested in the impact of the mortality assumptions on the valuation of pension liabilities. In 2009, she worked six months as a research assistant on longevity risk at the University of New South Wales in Sydney, Australia. Along with her work at the university, she has worked for the International Labour Organization as well as for some consulting pension fund firms.
