Researcher output profile for Dr Md Rabiul Islam
Md Rabiul Islam, Alfred Deakin post-doctoral research fellow at the Alfred Deakin Research Institute, is a growth and development economist whose work focuses on productivity, technology transfer, human capital, financial development, savings and investment, income inequality, and institutional development. More specifically, his research focuses on innovation and diffusion of technology, composition of human capital, quality adjusted education, agricultural development and income distribution across developed and developing countries. He completed his PhD at the Department of Economics at Monash University in 2011 and also completed 2-year research fellowship at the Department of Economics at Monash University from 2011-2013.
Rabiul has published several papers in international refereed journals, with key publications in Canadian Journal of Economics, Journal of Macroeconomics, and International Review of Finance. One of his recent papers is forthcoming in Economic Inquiry. He also has several papers either under consideration at peer reviewed international journals or being prepared for submission. Additionally, he has been working on the following research areas: agricultural R&D and land productivity, resource rents and productivity growth, fertility and education, inequality and unified growth, and spatial distribution of income inequality and growth.
Rabiul has been with ADRI since January, 2014 and is currently working on the empirical modelling of a unified theory of inequality and growth. This research focuses on integrating conflicting view of classical and modern approach on inequality-growth nexus in a unified growth framework over a long period of time. The outcome of the project is expected to inform on the important determinants of inequality and uncover effective transmission channels through which inequality affects growth and development across nations over the past century.
