In Memoriam: Martine Quinzii

It is with a very heavy heart that we inform you that Martine Quinzii passed away on May 25th, in Perigueux, France. She was a fellow of The Econometric Society since 2000, and served as Associate Editor of Econometrica from 1991 to 2003.

Martine was a prolific researcher, an enthusiastic academic, a devoted teacher and an unconditional friend. Her contributions to the theory of general equilibrium and to its interactions with macroeconomic theory and finance are not just seminal: they are significant also for the creativity, rigor and elegance they display. Her work reached a standard that later economic theorists strive to achieve.

During her career, she taught mathematics and economics at Marseille-Luminy, Ecole Politechnique, Aix-Marseille, Paris II, Southern California and UC Davis, where she was Professor Emeritus since 2016. She had been Associate Editor at Annals of Finance, Economic Theory, Journal of Mathematical Economics, and Mathematical Social Sciences, and was a fellow also of The Society for the Advancement of Economic Theory.

Martine was Co-Chair of the forthcoming North American Summer Meeting of the Econometric Society. The Society’s Walras-Bowley Lecture at that conference, which she was expected to chair, will be delivered in her memory.
