 Rod Tyers


Professor Tyers is a specialist in applied international economics. He has undergraduate and masters degrees from the University of Melbourne and a doctorate from Harvard University. He has held brief academic appointments at the University of Hawaii and the University of Adelaide and more extended ones at the Australian National University. He is Winthrop Professor of Economics at the University of Western Australia, though he retains an Adjunct Professorship at the Research School of Economics in the Australian National University. 

His research applies economic modelling to issues in international economics, to which he has contributed four books, more than 70 refereed articles and 50 chapters in books. The majority of his research output has concerned the performance of Asian economies and their international implications and, during the past decade, he has focussed on the economies of China and Japan. 

Most recently, he has studied macroeconomic policy formation in China and the global implications of Chinese and Japanese demographic change but he is currently working on the Australian economy and the implications of the recent boom for policy and performance. He has also worked on trade policy, commodity market volatility and the consequences of globalisation and technical change for labour market performance.
