Wendy Carlin, Professor of Economics at University College London, will be speaking at WES 2018.
Prof. Carlin has undertaken research focusing primarily on macroeconomics, institutions and economic performance, and the economics of transition; with several works looking into macroeconomic policy and integrating the financial system in the macroeconomic model. Alongside her academic role, Professor Carlin is a research fellow at the Centre for Economic Policy Research and on the expert advisory panel of the Office for Budget Responsibility.
She is also leading the international CORE project to revolutionise the way Economics is taught at university by providing a more problem-motivated and interactive way to learn economics whilst also bringing recent developments into the learning environment. The eBook the project has so far produced is used by highly respected institutions all over the world including Sciences-Po, UCL and the Toulouse School of Economics. The project aims to take what is exciting about being an economist today, and bringing that excitement to the classroom.
