Ms Ayasha Akter

PhD Candidate

School of Economics and Public Policy

Faculty of Arts, Business, Law and Economics

I finished my PhD from the University of Adelaide. My research interest are on the areas of applied macroeconomics and time series econometrics, specifically focusing on monetary policy transmission mechanism in Bangladesh, macroeconomic effects of fiscal policy in a subset of European countries under the European Monetary Union and nexus between financial development and economic growth in a set of both emerging and developed countries. My research combines econometrics and policy-relevant questions by using time series datasets (VECM, SVAR and ARDL Bound Test).
