Professor & Chair in Applied Economics
Gary Dymski is Professor and Chair in Applied Economics at the Leeds University Business School.
He received his PhD in economics from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst in 1987. He joined the faculty at the Leeds University Business School (LUBS) as Chair in Applied Economics in 2012 after 21 years in the University of California system.
Prof Dymski's research focuses on discrimination and redlining in credit markets, urban economic development, financial crisis, the subprime and Eurozone crises, banking and financial regulation, and urban development.
At Leeds, he is co-leader of the university’s cities research theme, and has been (or is) involved in several research projects, including one on inequality and finance in Europe, and another - ‘self-healing cities’ – exploring how robots can transform urban infrastructure, and how this transition can be done without worsening inequality. He is involved in two UK-wide network projects, one aimed at rebuilding macroeconomics and the other focused on a region-first approach to the UK productivity puzzle.
