Estelle Cantillon is a FNRS senior research associate at the Solvay Brussels School where she teaches environmental economics in the MA programmes and advises doctoral students in market design, industrial organisation, and environmental economics. Her research lies at the boundary between market design and industrial organization. She has published on auctions, procurement and competition in the financial industry. Her current research spans school choice, competition in the financial industry and environmental market design.

Estelle is an elected member of the Council of the European Economic Association, a member of the executive committee of the European Association for Research in Industrial Economics, an Associate Editor at the Rand Journal of Economics, a member of the Economics Council of OXERA, a consultancy, and a member of the steering committee of Re-Bel (Rethinking Belgium) and a member of the scientific committee of the Belgian Energy Observatory. She has recently launched the multidisciplinary European-wide research network, "Matching in Practice", whose goal is to foster developments at the interface between theory, empirics, experiments and policy on admission procedures in education as well as entry-labor markets.

Estelle holds a Ph.D. in Economics from Harvard University (David A. Wells Prize for best dissertation in Economics) and has held prior appointments at Yale University and Harvard Business School before joining the faculty at the Solvay Brussels School in 2004. In 2008, she received one of the coveted starting grants from the European Research Council.
