International Trade, Economics of Conflict and Security, Industrial Organization


Manaf Sellak

I am a PhD candidate in the Department of Economics at Kansas State University. My areas of research interests include Microeconomics, International Trade, Economics of Conflict and Security, and Industrial Organization. In my dissertation, I have developed economic models which analyze the relationship between international trade and interstate conflict.

As a researcher, I have demonstrated record of success that includes a recent publication at the journal of Public Choice, a referee job for two professional journals (Public choice and Managerial Finance). Moreover, I have received two outstanding research awards.

My teaching experience includes a variety of courses at the undergraduate level, which include Principles of Microeconomics, Principles and Intermediate Macroeconomics, Managerial Economics, International Trade, and Fundamentals of Mathematics. I am the co-winner of the Graduate Teaching Award for undergraduate teaching excellence in 2018.

I will be available for interviews at the SEA in Washington DC on November 2018 and at the ASSA in Atlanta, GA on January 2019.
