Welcome Dr Tho Pham

News | Posted on Wednesday 8 February 2023

We welcome Dr Tho Pham to the Department of Economics and Related Studies who has joined us as a Senior Lecturer in Finance.

Tho’s research interests are the intersection between applied economics and data science with a special interest in gender economics and financial economics.

Tho’s most recent publication “The Voice of Monetary Policy“ in American Economic Review was cited in the Bloomberg newsletter “Power Faces the Bulls” on Wednesday 1 February 2023. The paper uses a cutting edge machine learning model to detect vocal emotions embedded in press conferences given by the US central bank and examines their influence on financial markets.

We are really excited to have Tho join us in the department!
