Emiliya Lazarova is Head of School and an Associate Professor in Economics. Her main research interests are in coalition formation, matching theory, and applied economics. Currently she works on uncertainty and (collective) decision making. In this context she studies how uncertainty impacts on agents’ search for an optimal outcome and characterizes the type of equilibrium outcomes in matching models. She extends this line of research toward the study of stability in coalition formation games. She also investigates how uncertainty in one market distorts optimal choices in interrelated markets. Emiliya is also involved in a project that studies the impact of disability on the decision to acquire human capital using LFS data.

Emiliya joined the UEA School of Economics in August 2013. Previously, Emiliya lectured at the University of Birmingham and Queen’s University Belfast where she taught quantitative courses such as Applied Econometrics and Quantitative Business Methods; and applied microeconomics topics such as Public Expenditure and Competition Policy and Regulation.

PhD Supervision Interests

Matching and coalition formation models are used to study diverse economic situations such as the matching of workers to firms and students to colleges, the allocation of houses, the formation of governments as well of international environmental agreements. Emiliya is interested in supervising PhD students in the areas of matching theory and coalition formation, especially as refers to issues in the context of status seeking, social integration, and conflict. She is happy to discuss both theoretical and empirical projects in these areas.
