London Business School’s (LBS) Rustam Jamilov (PhD2015) has been invited to the 7th Lindau Meeting on Economic Sciences, part of the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings, in the German city of Lindau.

The triennial Lindau Meeting on Economic Sciences brings together the brightest young economists to discuss current economic matters in their field, and act as an international forum for scientific exchange. Rustam is just one 373 young economists from around the world to have been invited to take part in the prestigious gathering.

The PhD candidate, sponsored by Professor Hélène Rey, Lord Bagri Professor of Economics, is particularly interested in studying the role of imperfect competition and market power of large financial institutions in the build-up to the Great Financial Crisis. His research is on the role of the financial sector in the origination and amplification of economic crises.

Reflecting on his achievement, Rustam said: “Attending the Lindau Meetings on Economic Sciences would put me in the same room with some of the profession's greatest minds. That would be a once-in-a-lifetime honour.”

“I have so many questions I want to ask them and can't wait for the opportunity to hear their views on some of the pressing socio-economic issues of our generation.”

The 7th Lindau Meeting on Economic Sciences and the interdisciplinary 70th Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting have been postponed to 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
