About

k.kohler@leeds.ac.uk

I’m a Lecturer in Economics at Leeds University Business School. My research crosses disciplinary boundaries and draws on macroeconomics, finance, and political economy. I’m interested in the interaction between finance and the real economy; especially sources of cyclical dynamics, instability, and rising inequality.

I’ve done research on business and financial cycles; the role of exchange rates in emerging market business cycles; financialisation & income distribution, as well as growth models in advanced countries. My work has been published in the Journal of International Money and Finance, Cambridge Journal of Economics, Review of International Political Economy, Structural Change and Economic Dynamics, and Journal of Post Keynesian Economics.

I’m co-leading a work package on financial cycles and capital flows in growth models as part of the Leverhulme Trust Grant The Political Economy of Growth Models in an Age of Stagnation.
