Wendy Carlin is Professor of Economics at University College London (UCL) and Research Fellow of the Centre for Economic Policy Research (CEPR). She is leading an international project - the CORE project - to reform the undergraduate economics curriculum. The CORE project produces open-access e-books used in universities around the world. Her research focuses on macroeconomics, institutions and economic performance, the economics of transition, and economic knowledge and education. She is a member of the Expert Advisory Panel of the UK's Office for Budget Responsibility. She has co-authored with David Soskice three macroeconomics books: Macroeconomics and the Wage Bargain (OUP, 1990), Macroeconomics: Imperfections, Institutions and Policies (OUP, 2006) and Macroeconomics: Institutions, Instability and the Financial System (OUP, 2015). The third book integrates the financial system into the macroeconomic model to allow for analysis of financial cycles as well as business cycles and growth. In 2015, she was awarded a CBE for services to economics and public finance.
