Leticia Arroyo Abad is an associate professor in the Department of Economics at Queens College. Her primary research expertise is the study of globalization and inequality both within and across nations, with a focus on the Americas. Before getting her Ph.D. at the University of California, Davis, Leticia worked as a macroeconomic analyst for an Argentine consultancy where she was charged with forecasting the effect of policy changes on economic conditions. She also analyzed specific industry portfolios, after which she worked at Inter-American Development and Bank and the Argentine Department of Industry. In 2009, she joined the faculty at Middlebury College before taking the opportunity to come to Queens in 2018. Her recent work has measured the effect of taxes on redistribution across Latin America, examined the impact of mining on long-term economic growth, analyzed immigration networks in Argentina, and quantified the effect of pandemics on American election results. Given her experience outside academia and her research agenda, Leticia can greatly enhance the new Business school curriculum. Currently, her teaching includes courses in macroeconomics, globalization, and economic growth. All her courses are designed to highlight the application of economic tools to historical cases. She envisions expanding her teaching portfolio to include courses on global economic and financial crises in historical perspective. Her teaching philosophy embraces the principle that knowledge of economic history is key for training students in the current economic environment.
