Ruhollah Eskandari (preferred name Omid) is a Lecturer (Teaching and Research). Omid is an Applied Macroeconomist.

Research interests: Macroeconomics, Fiscal and Monetary Policy, Macro-Finance, Corporate Finance, Time-Series Econometrics



My research lies at the intersection of macroeconomics and finance, with a special focus on issues related to fiscal and monetary policy, as well as corporate finance. In particular, I focus on examining how tax policy affects both macroeconomic aggregates and firms' real and financial decisions. I am also interested in analyzing the important role of financial frictions in the impact of macroeconomic shocks (tax, monetary policy, and uncertainty) on firms' performance, particularly SMEs' productivity in England.
