Rui, also known as Aruhan, graduated from BA Finance (Durham University) with a first class honour, and MSc Economics (Warwick University) with a distinction. She is now undertaking MRes/PhD research at Warwick University on the timely and highly policy relevant topic of macro modelling without rational expectations. Her research focuses on theory and empirics of macroeconomic modelling in the framework of general equilibrium in order to better understand the transmission mechanisms of policies and macro disturbances. She is also interested in applying machine learning techniques to relevant policy issues. Rui has also worked at the UNESCO headquarters within the Social and Human Science sector.
