I am a Macro-Development Economist, interested in the causes and consequences of growth and development. I work on the impacts of human capital, governance (corruption), government policy, and trade liberalisation on economic growth and productivity, the channels of their impact, and their reverse causality. I develop dynamic general equilibrium models to explain the persistence of poverty in certain countries, and empirically I test these using dynamic panel data models and threshold models.
I received PhD degree in Economics from The University of Manchester in 2002. Prior to joining Manchester in 2005, I have been a Research Fellow at the University of Nottingham (2003 – 2005), a Lecturer and an ESRC Postdoctoral Fellow at Manchester (2001 – 2003). I am currently a Research Fellow of Centre for Growth and Business Cycles Research (CGBCR) at the University of Manchester.
My research interests include
Economic Development and Growth Theory, Trade Liberalization, and Applied
Macroeconomics with the application of time series and panel data models. My
current work includes the investigation of the relationship between government
policies, governance, trade liberalization and economic growth; causes and
consequence of corruption; financial development, innovation and
regulation; explaining the heterogeneous effects of human capital on
growth; both from theoretical and empirical perspectives.
I also work on the comparative impact of global financial crisis on Islamic Banks and Traditional Banks in GCC countries.
