Dr Omid Mazdak
  • Teaching Fellow

I joined the School of Slavonic and Eastern European Studies, UCL, in September 2019 as a Teaching Fellow in Economics. My teaching is concentrated in quantitative/econometric modules at the Undergraduate and Postgraduate level.

At UCL, I am also a Co-Leader in the Widening Participation Programme. I lead masterclasses and workshops aimed at increasing the participation of students from disadvantaged backgrounds at the University level.

Before joining UCL, I was a Senior Teaching Fellow in Economics at SOAS, University of London, where my teaching was again in quantitative methods at the Undergraduate and Postgraduate level. 

I also have much industry experience, working as an economic consultant at HM Revenue and Customs, Department for International Development, and the United Nations Conference for Trade and Development. 

Research Summary

My research interests include time series econometrics, with particular application to the commodities sector, namely energy, metals and grain agricultural markets. I have a keen interest in the interplay between commodity derivatives markets and commodity market fundamentals. 

I am also interested in economic methodology, namely the Keynesian, Ricardian and Marxian Schools of thought, especially in reference to mining and agricultural rent.
