Please join the Department of Economics in welcoming two visiting professors for the 2013-2014 academic year, Makram El-Shagi and Aysin Tekindor. Makram received his PhD and postdoctoral degrees in Economics from the University of Mannheim in 2003 and 2008. He is currently on leave from his position as senior economist at the Halle Institute for Economic Research in Germany where he is heading a research project on financial market regulation. Makram’s research interests are applied monetary economics, capital market regulation, and computational econometrics. One of his current working papers on the mechanics of the Federal Open Market Committee of the Federal Reserve under chairman Greenspan has been recently discussed in the media including the Wall Street Journal. Aysin recently received her PhD from the School of Economic Sciences at Washington State University. Her research interests include applied microeconomics, industrial organization, econometrics, art economics and management, cultural economics, and environmental economics and natural resources. Aysin’s research about pricing art has caught the attention of media in many countries due to its general public appeal. Aysin, an artist herself, has had her paintings included in several exhibitions in New York and Washington states as well as in her home country of Turkey.
