Hylke Vandenbussche
 I am currently a full professor in economics at the University of Leuven in Belgium. I started my academic career as a lecturer at the University of Cambridge, UK. After that I was a professor at the university of Louvain-la-neuve for several years. In the US, I have been teaching as a visiting professor at Dartmouth College and I return regularly to the US for research stays and conference attendance e.g. NBER, FREIT, Midwest. I am a member of the American Economic Association and the European Economic Association and a research fellow of CEPR. At Leuven, I teach international trade and micro-economics. My research interests are on firm-level trade and the role of demand, input-output linkages, global value chains and the interaction with trade policy.
