'Every Researcher Needs a Department That Keeps Believing in Them'

Hundreds of scholars from all over the world teach and conduct research at HSE University. At the International College of Economics and Finance (ICEF) alone there are more than 30 researchers who hold PhDs from universities outside Russia. One of them is Emiliano Catonini, who completed his second research project this year and is now preparing it for publication. He spoke with the HSE News Service about getting students to put their phones away during lecture, surviving academia, trading energy for economics, and falling in love with Moscow winters.

‘Scholars Are Humans, and You Shouldn’t Be Afraid of Them’

ICEF not only trains professionals in economics and finance, but also provides a perfect start for an academic career. Daniil Esaulov, lecturer, coordinator of student research work at ICEF and manager of ICEF Academia project, talked to us about how ICEF develops research skills, what students do at ICEF Academia, and why one shouldn’t be afraid of authorities in research.

The HSE Look July Issue

The third issue of 2020 presents three interviews on tenure track stories and our commentary on a new format of the April conference.

This Time is Different: Economic Policy Challenges in the time of COVID-19

An online panel discussion by economic experts will be hosted by ICEF on 3 June, 2020

'The aftermath of COVID-19: The Macroeconomy, Banks and NPLs'

ICEF Associate Professor of Finance Udara Peiris will talk about the upcoming financial problems on the Brown Bag Seminar on April 15th

New ICEF Full Time Academics

Two new academics will start their work at ICEF in September 2020. They have already met ICEF researchers and were interviewed on the ASSA Meeting – a global academic community job market which took place in San Diego this January.

We Forecast a Severe Global Recession

ICEF held a round table on Global Economy Challenges in 2020. Mr Thanassis Gontikas, Senior Vice-President of Edmond de Rothschild Bank (EdR) in Switzerland, was invited as a speaker.

'HSE ICEF Has a Diverse Team of Enthusiastic People'

As described by one of the original ICEF team members, Oleg Zamkov, ICEF Deputy Director and Academic Head of HSE and University of London Double Degree Programme in Economics, the success of ICEF was in choosing the right moment for the start and finding the right people, both academics and administrators. It would also be unimaginable without the advice and support from London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE), especially Richard Layard, who helped design several key elements of the curriculum for double degree programme, Richard Jackmanand Amos Witztum who made a significant contribution to ICEF idea implementation.

People of ICEF

Today, ICEF is proud to be academic home to over 20 international researchers with PhD degrees in economics, finance and social sciences, representing different countries and continents: Russia, Germany, France, Italy, Greece, Ukraine, Argentina, Australia, and India. ICEF faculty members share their stories of joining the team for The HSE Look readers.

ICEF Academia: for Curious and Brilliant Minds 

In addition to the already intense studies, ICEF offers students a chance to gain even deeper knowledge of Economics and Finance. ICEF faculty members tell about ICEF Academia - a special programme aimed at students who excel at their studies and who want to acquire additional skills and knowledge. 

The Way of Thinking

Dr. Udara Peiris received his PhD from the University of Oxford in 2010. He has been part of the HSE faculty for almost two years after accepting the position of Assistant Professor at the International College of Economics and Finance in 2012. Dr. Peiris spoke to 'The HSE LooK' before the summer break.
