Emily Gallagher is an assistant professor of finance in the real estate track of the Leeds School of Business. She received her Ph.D. in economics from the Paris School of Economics (Sorbonne) in 2015 and completed her post-doctorate work at Washington University in St. Louis (Olin) in 2017. She is also a visiting scholar at the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis.
Her research is empirical and centers on two areas: household finance and mutual funds. Recent papers in household finance examine the effect of changes in U.S. health policy on rent and mortgage delinquency rates, eviction/foreclosure costs, and household savings decisions. Her work often involves quasi-experimental designs, using large policy changes or natural disasters as tools to better understand the financial calculus of households. In the mutual fund space, Emily’s research centers on identifying the factors driving fund investors to redeem shares during down markets and what, if any, consequences these redemptions carry for the stability of the global financial system.
Emily teaches Real Estate Finance and Investments, REAL 4100, at the Leeds School of Business.
