The University of Cambridge Academic Career Pathways scheme recognises and reward outstanding contributions and celebrate academic achievement through promotion and pay progression.

This year, all three of the candidates from the Faculty of Economics that were put forward have been successful.

Meredith Crowley, a Professor of International Economics and a Fellow of St. John's College, Elisa Faraglia, a University Associate Professor, Fellow at King's College, and Research Fellow at CEPR, and Flavio Toxvaerd, a University Associate Professor at the Faculty of Economics, Fellow of Clare College, and also a Research Fellow at CEPR.

The Academic Career Pathways scheme is based on contributions in research and research leadership, teaching along with researcher development, and service to the University and to the academic community more broadly.

Professor Toxvaerd has made important contributions to the study of industrial organisation and competition policy, with an emphasis on market dynamics and anticompetitive behaviour. He has also made fundamental contributions to the interdisciplinary field of economic epidemiology, analysing behaviour and policy formulation during epidemics. His work has been pivotal to our understanding of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Professor Meredith Crowley research on international trade, multinational trade agreements, and trade policy has appeared in numerous peer-reviewed journals including the American Economic Review, the Canadian Journal of Economics, the European Journal of Political Economy, the Journal of Development Economics, the Journal of International Economics and World Trade Review. She is a Senior Fellow of the publicly-funded UK in a Changing Europe (UKCE) think tank, a Research Fellow at the Centre for Economic Policy Research (CEPR - London), a member of the Trade and Economy Panel of the UK Department for International Trade, and a member of the Scientific Council of Bruegel, the Brussels-based think tank.

Prof Faraglia has made important contributions in the field of macrofinance. She has extensively researched public debt management, both empirically and theoretically. More recently her research focuses on the role of multinationals for determining international asset prices, as well as on the effect of cross border shocks on firms’ corporate structures.
