During the last couple of weeks I have been to two conferences and given a talk. The first conference was the European Society for Population Economics' annual meeting in Paris. I presented my paper on sex selective abortion in India and received a lot of valuable comments. Just before that conference I went to Mannheim to present my work on risk and fertility in Guatemala at the Mannheim Research Institute for the Economics of Aging at the University of Mannheim. Currently I am in San Francisco for the Western Economic Association's annual conference, where I presented the sex selection work. After this the next conference is not until the end of September when I will be presenting at the NEUDC at Brown.
