Dr Zhang He is an international macro-economist with emphasis on applied econometrics (e.g. Panel Vector Autoregression Model, Dynamic Factor Model). He was awarded a PhD in Economics at the University of Bradford in 2014. 

Before he joined Teesside University as a Senior Lecturer in Economics, Zhang had worked in the Division of Economics at the University of Bradford where he taught a range of undergraduate modules within the area of Macroeconomics. The main teaching interests of Dr Zhang He are macroeconomics, monetary economics, international economics, and the economics of European Monetary Union. 

His current research centres on examining the sustainability of Economic and Monetary Union (EMU) within the European Union (EU) in the context of New Consensus Macroeconomics Model and the Endogeneity of the Optimum Currency Area Hypothesis. His research is divided into three main areas: 1) the synchronisation of EMU business cycles, 2) effectiveness of ECB monetary policy, and 3) the relation between fiscal policy/government debts and long-term interest rates of government bonds in the eurozone. He is also interested in other aspects of macroeconomics/monetary economics which are related to EMU and international economy.
