Applied Economics

About us

The Applied Economics Research Cluster concentrates on some of the most pressing policy issues of our time. These span from poverty, inequality and disadvantage to migration, climate change and crime, among others. Applied economists at the Adam Smith Business School work on various fields, such as labour, development, health, financial and behavioural economics. Our work explores some of the most fundamental theoretical questions in economics and tests them with quantitative and empirical applications. Our research, teaching and practice are clearly interdisciplinary and employ a wide range of different research methods. We work with colleagues in related sciences, such as sociology, law, history, psychology, politics and health studies. We also host a weekly research seminar series which is open to speakers from all disciplines. Importantly, our work focuses on generating societal impact by influencing business and public policy interventions based on rigorous evidence. Through our research, we seek to contribute to an efficient, equitable and sustainable future.

Impact and Engagement

Learn more about our projects and activities

Impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on mental health

Our cluster members are at the forefront of research on the impact of COVID-19 on mental health. Professor Eugenio Proto has collaborated with Professor Climent Quintana-Domeque (Exeter) to research mental health deterioration by ethnicity and gender. In addition, Professor Proto and Dr Anwen Zhang have investigated the impact of COVID-19 lockdowns on personality types, finding that individuals, especially women, with open and extrovert personalities experienced higher deterioration in their mental health than other personality types. Together with Dr Michele Battisti, Professor Proto and Dr Zhang have also researched the prevalence of anxiety and depression among doctors in Catalonia, Italy and the UK during the pandemic. Collectively, these research projects have the potential to inform future policy responses, identify at-risk groups as well as more personalised psychological or psychiatric treatments for the post-COVID period.

Women and low-paid employment

Image of a woman with a mop cleaning a floor

Dr Tanya Wilson is working with fellow Glasgow investigators on the first project of its kind to study the nature and extent of women’s multiple low-paid employment (MLPE) in the UK. It will examine the relationships between MLPE, caring responsibilities and health and wellbeing. The findings will be used to identify lessons for public policy to support the health and wellbeing of women in MLPE. It will also take into consideration the impact of COVID-19 on women in MLPE. This Nuffield Foundation-funded project runs from December 2020 to November 2023.

Historical pollution and neighbourhood sorting

Image of pollution from power plants

Professor Alex Trew has found a link between historical air pollution and neighbourhood sorting, with a wealth gap that persists between eastern and western suburbs decades after the adoption of air pollution controls. The research, which has been featured in The Economist and on the Freakonomics podcast, has implications for urban planners and local governments. For example, the success of urban policies to revitalise deprived areas may depend on the initial level of deprivation. It also has implications for countries in which coal production continues to dominate. Dr Stephan Heblich (Toronto) and Dr Yanos Zylberberg (Bristol) were co-collaborators on this research project.
