People of CERGE-EI: Meet Our Alumni

23 February, 2021

Vladimír Novák, one of our recent PhD graduates, has already achieved a great deal in the field of economic research. Last year, Vladimír successfully defended his dissertation under the supervision of Filip Matějka and lent his hand to participate in the IDEA Anti COVID-19 initiative, which issued many studies on matters related to the coronavirus outbreak. In a new blog interview, we asked him several questions regarding his position of Postdoctoral Researcher in Milan, and his current and past research projects.

"I am now involved in a research team that focuses mostly on development economics, which allows me to gain a lot of inspiration for my research and deepen my knowledge as it wasn’t my primary field of expertise," explains Vladimír in the blog interview.

Vladimír has been an active member of the team of professor Eliana La Ferrara (former president of European Economic Association and 2020 recipient of Brigid Grodal Award for the best European-based female economist) at Universita Bocconi in Milan since September 2020.
