主講人簡介

Andrew Farlow, Senior Fellow at Oxford Martin School, University of Oxford. Andrew Farlow is an economist, educated at the Universities of Cambridge and Oxford, with wide interests in macroeconomics, finance, banking, new technology, and health. His highly inter-disciplinary, policy-orientated approach is reflected in the series of cross-disciplinary research projects he has led or coled at Oxford and his positions: currently Senior Fellow at the Oxford Martin School (Oxford’s interdisciplinary school), and, previously, Senior Research Fellow at the Department of Zoology (Spatial Ecology and Epidemiology Group), Senior Research Fellow at the Saïd Business School, and Research Fellow at Oriel College. He teaches students preparing for their final examination paper in Money and Banking and in specialist topics in macroeconomics, and he lectures on the economic components of Oxford’s programmes in Global Health, in Public Health and Policy, and in Human and Veterinary Vaccinology. His entrepreneurial approach to academic research has led him to work on financial and banking-system crisis and crashes, speculative bubbles, property market instability, macroeconomic policy, innovative’ health financing, new health technologies, health systems (especially in extremely resourcepoor settings), malaria, TB, pandemic flu, the impact of the environment and the health of the planet on human health (‘planetary health’), and infectious disease-outbreak detection and prevention.
