Professor Beata Javorcik

Professor of International Economics
MPhil, PhD
University Academic Fellow since 2014

I am an international trade economist interested mainly in empirical work on policy-relevant questions. My research programme focuses on identifying the policies through which countries can use international integration to facilitate their economic growth. In my work, I have examined the determinants and consequences of inflows of foreign direct investment, the implications of services liberalization for productivity growth, and strategies multi-product firms use to compete in international markets. In my most recent research, I study the effects of globalisation on the gender wage gap and female employment.
