Lise Patureau is a Professor of Economics at the University Paris-Dauphine, France since September 2014. After a PhD at the University of Paris I Panthéon-Sorbonne achieved in 2003, she obtained a position of Assistant Professor at the University of Cergy-Pontoise, then as professor at the University of Lille I from 2010 to 2014.
Her research work is in the field of international macroeconomy. Adopting the framework of stochastic dynamic general equilibrium models (DSGE), she investigates the role of market imperfections in exchange rate fluctuations and the international transmission of shocks, with special focus on the role of financial frictions or those relative to the labor market. In her more recent work, she studies the role of collateral constraints as a determinant of firms investment or the link between sovereign debt and the risk premium.
Her research interests also lie in the field of international trade. She notably studied the role of labor market institutions in the choice of international location of companies. In her more recent work, she investigates the form, magnitude and evolution of international transport costs empirically over the recent decades.
Her research works attest a marked interest for the analysis of economic policies. After studying monetary policy, she examines the role of fiscal policy (labor taxation, indirect taxation, employment subsidies, protectionist policy through import taxes) and structural reforms (product market deregulation, structural labor market reforms) in the performances of the national economy in a globalized environment.
