Dariya Mykhayliv graduated from the University of Leeds with a PhD in Economics. Her research interests are at the intersection of microeconomics, financial economics, corporate governance and macroeconomics. One stream of her recent research investigates the impact of private benefits of managers on the (investment) behaviour of firms, both from a theoretical and empirical perspective. This research has applications to issues related to corruption and asset stripping frequently observed in transitional economies.  Her other stream of recent research deals with macroeconomics, the financial system in Europe and its impact on inequality.
