Top Economics student research showcased on Warwick Monash portalMonday 9 Oct 2023
Nine exciting and original dissertations were published last week in the bi-annual Warwick Monash Economics Student Papers (WM-ESP) series.
The online portal showcases the best undergraduate and masters economics research at the two partner universities. The WM-ESP portal was launched just over 2 years ago and has had 56 papers submitted prior to last week's 9 submissions. Out of these 9 publications, 4 belong to Warwick students.
The series aims to provide insight into the issues that young economists are using their skills to understand and solve. Issues tackled so far include income inequality, obesity, climate change, human capital, boardroom diversity, and livestock vaccination rates in Vietnam.
Member of the WM-ESP Editorial Board Dr Atisha Ghosh said:
“We are very happy to announce the fifth round of the Warwick Monash Economics Student Papers (WM-ESP) series. The Department of Economics of the University of Warwick and the Economics Department at Monash University are very proud of their long history of collaboration with international partner universities, and the Monash Warwick Alliance reflects the belief in both Universities that the future will rely on strong links between peer Universities, reflected in faculty, student, and research linkages. This paper series reflects the first step in allowing our Undergraduate, Honours, and Masters students to learn from and interact with peers within the Alliance.”
Khushi Duggal looked at the relationship between child marriage and female educational attainment in India. She said:
"I am thrilled that my undergraduate dissertation has been selected for the Warwick Monash Economics Student Paper Series portal. It is an honour to have my paper published alongside such amazing research. Writing my paper was such an incredible experience, and I hope that it proves useful to other students and academics.”
Andy Lau had the paper titled "A model of online misinformation with endogenous reputation". He said:
"I am deeply honoured to have my undergraduate dissertation selected for the Warwick Monash Economics Student Paper Series. This recognition is invaluable to me, and it reinforces my passion for doing economic research."
Jan Szydlo's paper is "Forecasting credit dynamics: VAR, VECM on modern factor-augmented VAR approach": He said
"I was thrilled to hear that my paper has been chosen to be published in the Warwick Monash Economics Student Paper Series. Knowing that my work has been read and recognised for its quality by a group of outstanding editors is a great privilege. It validates all the effort I put into my research and encourages me to further pursue a research-related career in the field of Economics."
We congratulate all students selected and wish them further success in the future.
