Biography

Katerina Karadimitropoulou is a Senior Lecturer in Macroeconomics. She completed her PhD, titled “Essays in Macroeconomic Cycles”, at the University of Kent. In this project she firstly analysed the sources of current account fluctuations in industrialized countries, then looked at the effects of recessions on structural change and the sources of productivity growth by focusing on a large industry-level dataset for a large set of developed and emerging markets. Currently, she is working on international business cycles at a disaggregate level and in particular, she analyses international co-movements of value added growth in a multi-sector dynamic factor model.
