Jamus Lim is an associate professor of economics at ESSEC Business School. Prior to his return to academia, he was a lead economist with the Abu Dhabi Investment Authority---where he oversaw economic inputs underlying tactical and strategic asset allocation for the sovereign fund's multi-hundred-billion dollar portfolio---and a senior economist with the World Bank, where he led a number of research initiatives on long-term economic forecasts, trade and finance in the Middle East and East Asia, and governance and human development in Africa. His research expertise and interests lie at the intersection of international macro-finance, political economy, and development economics, and his work has appeared in academic journals such as the Journal of Money, Credit, and Banking and Journal of International Money and Finance, policy flagships such as the Global Economic Prospects and Global Monitoring Report, and op-ed features in the Financial Times and Straits Times. An old Rafflesian, he graduated with first-class honors from the University of Southern Queensland, and went on to graduate work at the London School of Economics, the University of California, and Harvard University. In his wild, impetuous youth, Jamus was variously a drummer, rugby player, and Solitaire junkie; today, his more mundane pursuits have led him to the gym, kitchen, and cellar (typically in reverse order).
