PROF. FERIDOON KOOHI-KAMALI, D.Phil (Oxford)

I am a Visiting Associate Professor of Applied Political Economy at the New School for Social Research, New Yory, teaching Econometrics in the PhD Economics Program; I have also taught graduate time-series Macroeconometrics at Columbia University. I hold a M.Sc (Econ.) from London University, and D.Phil in Economics from Oxford University. My early background was in  financial journalism; I have expertise in war-time rationing of scarce resources and measurement of shortage by price adjustment. I have worked as a research and teaching economists at a number of academic institutions, and have been a consultant to the World Bank (Africa region), and a member of the research team on the 2010 European Union Report on Development dealing with social protection in Sub-Sahara Africa. 

My teaching has covered core undergraduate courses, and electives such as development economics, inequality & poverty, time-series analysis & forecasting, and International Finance; plus an interdispiclanry course on identity and violence: perspectives and measurements.   

My research interests are on international development and applied Econometrics. One area of my current research focus is on price disequilibrium and its dynamics over time in foreign exchange rate parallel markets (China and Iran); I am curently exploring similar application to economic issues emerging from Covid-19 supply shortages. My other research area is  child gender inequality in intrahousehold resource allocation (Ethipopia, China, India and Iran); measuring the effects of household size and household-level public goods on the standard of living.
