Paolo Surico, Associate Professor of Economics at London Business School has been awarded a grant of almost £100K to research the uneven effects of monetary and fiscal policies on people in different demographic groups and income brackets.

Dr Surico receives the one-year grant of up to £99,961 from the prestigious British Academy Mid-Career Fellowship Scheme.

Dr Surico says: "It is a great honour for me and the Economics department to receive such prestigious outside recognition within the fields of humanities and social science.

“I look forward to diving into the challenging task of investigating new dimensions of the transmission of macroeconomic policies by combining micro survey data and heterogeneous agent models, with the invaluable support and input of colleagues and collaborators at the London Business School."

The British Academy is an independent, national academy of Fellows elected for their eminence in research and publications. As the UK's expert body for humanities and social sciences, it supports outstanding researchers to promote public understanding and engagement in these fields.

Dr Surico is Associate Professor of Economics at London Business School and a faculty research affiliate of the Centre for Economic Policy Research (CEPR). He specialises in Economic Theory, Macroeconomics, Business Cycle, Monetary Economics and Applied Econometrics.
