A. Kerem Coşar studies international trade and macroeconomics. In his recent research, he applies the tools of macroeconomics, such as dynamic programming and computational solutions, to questions arising in international trade. His research contributes to the analysis of the short-run effects of increased international competition.
Coşar previously taught international economics at the undergraduate level while pursuing his graduate studies. His research papers this year include “Adjusting to Trade Liberalization: Reallocation and Labor Market Policies,” and “Firm Dynamics, Job Turnover, and Wage Distributions in an Open Economy” (coauthor).
Coşar has been honored with the Gary D. Eppen Faculty Fellowship from the University of Chicago and a graduate student fellowship from the National Science Foundation to attend the Second Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting in Economic Sciences in Lindau, Germany.
Coşar earned his PhD in economics from the Pennsylvania State University and his BA and MA degrees in management and economics from Bogazici University, Istanbul, Turkey.
