Nora M. Strecker is an assistant professor of economics at University College Dublin’s School of Economics. She took up her position in 2020 after completing her PhD in 2017 and three years of working as a postdoctoral researcher at ETH Zurich. Her work is at the intersection of public finance and international economics, with a focus on issues of taxation and globalization. Her expertise in taxation and the effects of trade liberalization make her ideally suited to pursue the research project described above. Her previous work established a causal link between globalization and the shifting of tax burden onto the middle class (American Economic Review, 2019), estimated the differential effect of multinational status on the profit taxes that firms pay, in addition to earlier work focusing on the effect of corporate profit and personal income taxes on the location choice of firms. Her work is focused on policy-relevant empirical estimations of the effects of taxation.
