Our research expertise include:
The ARC Centre of Excellence for Children and Families over the Life Course (the Life Course Centre) is a national research centre uniquely positioned to tackle the intergenerational transmission of deep and persistent disadvantage in Australian families.
The School of Economics (Life Course Centre Sydney node) runs seminars periodically, designed to provide a network and collaborative opportunities for academics from Australia and abroad.
For seminar details, please contact Dr Nathan Kettlewell.
The Sydney Experimental Brownbag Seminar is a joint venture between experimental economics researchers at The University of Sydney, University of New South Wales, and University of Technology Sydney.
The seminar meets fortnightly, and welcomes presentation of experimental research, broadly defined, at all stages – from design through to finished papers. Speakers usually present at a location other than their home institution, and presentations by research students are most welcome.
For more information, contact the University of Sydney seminar coordinator for 2019, Stephanie Heger.
Our meetings provide an opportunity for faculty working in the field of econometric theory to present early-stage and ongoing research. Other interested faculty and PhD students with research relevant to the themes of the group are invited to present as well.
All presentations will be held in the Social Sciences Building (A02).
In 2019, Ye Lu will coordinate the ETRS series. If you wish to contribute, please contact Ye Lu.
The group provides an opportunity for academic staff working on empirical microeconomics and public policy, broadly understood, to present ongoing research, including at the earliest stages. This group includes Tiho Ancev, Kadir Atalay, Garry Barrett, Shyamal Chowdhury, Deborah Cobb-Clark, Nick de Roos, Rebecca Edwards, Hayley Fisher, Tim Fisher, Colm Harmon, Jian Hong, Stefanie Schurer, Katrien Stevens, Russell Toth, Agnieszka Tymula, David Ubilava, Jordi Vidal Robert, Marian Vidal-Fernandez, and Stephan Whelan. Other interested faculty and Ph.D. students with research relevant to the themes of the group are invited to present from time to time.
There can be more than one presenter in a given week, depending on how much material each presenter has ready. However, keeping in mind the need to allow ample time for discussion of early-stage work, we usually plan to have a single presenter present for 30-40 minutes, and allow the remainder of the time for questions and discussion.
For 2018, please contact Katrien Stevens if you would like to get on the mailing list or contribute a presentation. You can also speak with Russell Toth, Garry Barrett, or Hayley Fisher in person.
The purpose of the group is to meet on a regular basis and discuss major publications or presenter's own work-in-progress in dynamic macroeconomics.
The group convenes on Tuesdays, 6:00pm-7:30pm every fortnight at the presenter's university. If you would like to receive announcements or contribute with a presentation, please contact one of the organisers: Aarti Singh (University of Sydney) or Christopher Gibbs (University of Sydney).
The main aim of the reading group is to create a collaborative environment for exchange of research ideas, presentation of early research work and research funding proposals among staff and research students with interest in agricultural, environmental and resource economics.
The group also aims to facilitate the establishment of new collaborations, and to foster existing research collaborations across disciplines with interest in these areas within the University of Sydney. The group also links with researchers that have interest in this area across several universities based in Sydney.
The reading group meets fortnightly during semester sessions, and at other times when the need or opportunity arises. The usual time and place for meetings is 1-2 pm on Wednesdays at the University of Sydney.
To register for the group’s mailing list or to suggest a presentation please get in touch with Tiho Ancev.
We host and are involved in a number of conferences and workshops in the field of economics. Below is an outline of some of our recent activity.
This workshop will host keynote speakers, Professor Onur Keston (Carnegie Mellon University), Professor Bettina Klaus (University of Lausanne), Professor Peter Moffatt (University of East Anglia) and Professor Andy Schotter (New York University).
This conference will host keynote speaker, Professor Fabio Petri (University of Siena).
The School of Economics hosted the 21st Labour Econometrics Workshop (LEW 2018) at the University of Sydney on 17-18 August 2018. This year’s keynote speakers were Associate Professor Jessica Pan (NUS) and Professor Colin A. Cameron (UC-Davis).
