Economics and finance research

Our academics and PhD students conduct cutting edge research in key areas - econometrics, macroeconomics, and microeconomics.

Our research benefits from existing research centres, the Birkbeck Centre for Applied Macroeconomics and the Centre for Finance and Commodities, which facilitate interactions with external academics, policymakers, our current and former PhD students.

Research in the school must pass our research ethics process.
