I am in my third-year at The ANU and am studying a Bachelor of Politics, Philosophy and Economics with a double major in Economics and Philosophy. I am an avid flamenco dancer and I also enjoy long-distance running.
I will be researching the impacts of Brexit on the financial sector of the UK’s economy. Financial sector activity makes up 8% of UK GDP and a large proportion of this is from intra-European trade. Given this, an understanding of the magnitude of the impacts of Brexit is important in informing the upcoming exit negotiation process. To conduct this research I will be using the Global Trade Analysis Project which is a computable general equilibrium model of the global economy.
