Areas of Research
Research at the Department of Economics is organized in a number of specialized research areas, some of which have parallels in recommended paths of specialization within education at the bachelor's and master's levels. The department has a number of such specialized research groups.
Financial economics with special emphasis on empirical asset pricing and financial econometrics, and overlapping with the research group in Econometrics; International Economics and Development Economics with special emphasis on trade theory, economic integration and policy-oriented development economics; Health Economics; Macroeconomics; Microeconomics, with a large number of senior faculty working on a variety of applications including mechanism design and experimental economics; and Public Economics.
Many of the researchers within the department's specialized research groups are also actively involved in the research and research collaborations at the School of Economics and Management.
