My name is Maksym Obrizan (click here for CV) and I am one of a very few economists stationed in Ukraine with a PhD in Economics from the US. I got my PhD from the University of Iowa in 2010. At the moment, I am an Assistant Professor at Kyiv School of Economics (www.kse.org.ua) located in a beautiful capital of Ukraine. Since January 2013 I have been a Guest Researcher at the Chair of Health Economics Dr. Martin Karlsson at the University of Duisburg-Essen (Germany). Since 2013 I also teach Macroeconomic theory and Financial Econometrics at International School of Economics at Tbilisi State University (Georgia). I actively participate in programs of international technical assistance implemented in Ukraine by USAID and the World Bank. Please feel free to contact me with interesting collaboration opportunities via mobrizan@gmail.com.

Please visit my Google Scholar profile for citations (600 and counting) and my RePec webpage for recent working papers.

You may also check my ORCID record, Scopus publications and journals for which I review at Publons.
