The School of Economics and Finance of Queen Mary University of London (QMUL) is organising the 3rd annual workshop for PhD & post-doctoral students. The workshop is organised by QMUL PhD students and aims to bring together researchers from all areas of Economics and Finance to create a stimulating environment for participants to discuss pressing issues in their fields and receive valuable feedback on their work. 

The two-day workshop consists of a mix of parallel and plenary sessions covering the following broad research-fields: Macroeconomics, Econometrics, Finance, Theoretical Microeconomics, and Applied Microeconomics.

Presentations (approx. 30 minutes) will be followed by a discussion led by a PhD student (approx. 15 minutes). Authors of selected papers might be asked to also discuss a paper related to their field of research. The scientific committee, consisting of QMUL PhD students and faculty members, will select two/three papers that will be awarded the Best Paper Acknowledgement. These papers will be presented in plenary sessions and discussed by a faculty member expert in that field.

Keynote speakers:

  • Professor Alex Edmans (LBS) - Professor of Finance at the LBS and Academic Director at the CCG.
  • Professor Wouter Den Haan (LSE) - Professor of Economics at the LSE, research fellow and programme director of the CEPR, and co-director of the CFM.
