Curriculum Vitae - Zeynep Akgul

Dr. Zeynep Akgul holds a Ph.D. (2015) in Agricultural Economics from Purdue University, MS (2009) and BS (2007) in Economics from the Middle East Technical University (METU) in Ankara, Turkey. Zeynep's primary research interests include computable general equilibrium modeling for international trade policy analysis with an emphasis on firm heterogeneity implementations with the GTAP model. She developed the firm heterogeneity module GTAP-HET, which incorporates consumer love-of-variety, endogenous productivity changes, as well as endogenous firm entry/exit into domestic and export markets. The GTAP-HET model has been used in project applications in the GTAP Short Course as well as in AGEC 618, a Ph.D. level course offered by the Department of Agricultural Economics at Purdue University. Zeynep developed and is the lead instructor of the GTAP-HET Course. Her current research interest is on estimating parameters of the firm heterogeneity model. Zeynep currently works as the GTAP University (GTAP-U) Coordinator. Her responsibilities include maintaining the applied CGE modeling curriculum in GTAP-U, developing new courses, and expanding educational outreach.
