Margaret joined King's Business School as a Lecturer in Economics in October 2022. Prior to that she was a Postdoctoral Researcher in the Department of Economics at the University of Lausanne (HEC), after gaining her PhD from the University of St. Gallen in 2018.

Margaret is a macroeconomist specializing in the fields of International Macroeconomics, Macroeconomics and Economic Growth. A broad aim of her research studies the drivers and macroeconomic consequences of international capital flows. To this end, her research synthesizes more relevant features of household and investor behavior, such as slow portfolio adjustment, limited asset market participation, non-rational expectations, or more realistic features of labor income shocks with structural macroeconomic models of international portfolio choice.

Her research aims to better understand massive international investments in a global economy that have major implications for market prices, such as exchange rates, but also real rates of return, and economic well-being.

Research Interests: International Macroeconomics, Macroeconomics, Economic Growth, Household Finance
