Speaker: Kimberley Scharf

Speaker biography

Kimberley Scharf is an academic economist with a special expertise in public policy, international tax, social networks and public goods, and the economics of philanthropy and non-profit enterprises. She aims to produce rigorous academic research that is real-world relevant and that is motivated and informed by current issues. It has a broad methodological base, spanning several subfields of economics – political economy, public finance, international trade and finance, industrial organisation – and reaches out to other disciplines where research synergies can be mutually explored – e.g., neuropsychology, marketing, decision sciences.

A distinctive theme that runs through many of Kimberley's research projects is understanding how private behaviour and incentives, as well as government policies, shape the structure and performance of the non-profit sector – these questions have so far been little studied by academics but they are central to key debates taking place within the non-profit sector.
