Biography

Professor Chari's research is in the fields of open-economy macroeconomics, international finance and empirical corporate finance. Her most recent work uses firm-level data to examine the effects of financial globalization on topics such as outbound FDI from emerging-markets, cross-border M&A, the political economy of protectionism, the rate of return to capital in capital-poor countries and the evolution of India's industrial composition following liberalization. Her earlier work on stock market liberalization uncovers new stylized facts about the interaction of real and financial markets using firm-level data. These facts complement a growing body of literature that documents the importance of financial development for economic growth. Anusha received a PhD in International Finance from The Anderson School at UCLA and an undergraduate degree in Philosophy, Politics and Economics from Balliol College at Oxford University. In addition to teaching at the University of North Carolina, she has taught both international and finance courses at University of Chicago's Booth School of Business , the University of Michigan, and the Haas School of Business at Berkeley. She is also a Faculty Research Fellow in the National Bureau of Economic Research's International Finance and Macroeconomics Program.
