Biography

Dr Shuddha Rafiq joined Deakin Business School (DBS) as a lecturer of economics in February 2014. His general research interests lie in the domain of applied and financial econometrics, with a focus on energy, resources, agriculture, commodity markets, trade, climate change and financial markets. His more recent work focuses on leveraging large databases to generate novel insights and guide policies in commodity and energy prices asymmetries and their non-linear interactions with trade, macro economy and financial intermediaries.

He has published articles in several scholarly journals including Energy Economics, Economics Modelling, Applied Energy, Resources Policy, Australian Journal of Agriculture and Resources Economics, and Applied Economics.

At DBS he teaches Economics for Managers; Applied Econometrics for Economics and Finance; and Energy, Environment and Development to undergraduate and postgraduate students. He is a Deakin accredited supervisor with PhD and honours level research students.

Dr Rafiq received his PhD in Economics and Finance from Curtin University in 2009.
