Joanne Peckitt, Communication and Stakeholder Engagement Coordinator
BCEC’s Astghik Mavisakalyan was promoted to the position of Associate Professor and Principal Research Fellow during the latest round of Curtin University academic promotions.
Astghik joined the Centre in 2013 and has research interests in the economics of education, labour economics and political economy.
Astghik leads the Centre’s Focus on Industry and Working Papers series and sits on the Economics Society of Australia’s WA Branch Council.
She was also recently successful in securing a grant funded by the Australia-Germany Joint Research Co-operation Scheme, which supports international academic cooperation between the two countries.
Astghik will investigate the health consequences of bribing in a joint research project with collaborators Dr Olga Popova and Dr Vladimir Otrachschenko from the Leibnitz Institute for East and Southeast European Studies (IOS), based in Regensburg, Germany.
BCEC looks forward to welcoming Astghik’s visiting collaborators in early 2019.
