About: Dr. Charles Saunders
View Charles Saunders's profile on LinkedIn

Charles worked at a private economic consulting firm for 11 years, in Ottawa. During this time he built, designed, and coded several economic models. These models were both static and forecasting models, with an Input-Output model at the core of many the models. Charles' time as a model builder required very detailed understanding of both the Canada and US data systems, which he uses in every model he develops.

Charles obtained his PhD in Economics, with a specialization in econometrics, from Carleton University. He holds a Master's degree in Economics, Bachelor of Arts in Economics, and Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry.
