Manal Shehabi

Visiting Research Fellow

Manal R. Shehabi’s research focuses on economics of resource-rich countries, energy economics, applied macroeconomics, economy-wide modeling, and political economy of petrostates.  Her current research project quantifies the impact of petroleum price volatility on the Kuwaiti economy, and evaluates economic and energy policies through economy-wide general equilibrium modeling.  Her work also spans energy-labor linkages, sovereign wealth funds, and the under-researched economic recovery of Kuwait post Gulf War.

Manal has expertise in energy and mining multinationals’ transfer pricing, gained while working as an economist consulting for a Big Four professional services firm in the US and Australia and then as the in-house expert for a multinational oil and mining services company.  Prior to that, she successfully launched and managed a business public policy project in Texas, and researched investments in the oil industry in West Asia at the UNCTAD.

Manal is PhD candidate in economics at the University of Western Australia and holds IPRS and APA scholarships from UWA and the Australian government.  She holds an MIA-Economics from the School of Government and Public Services at Texas A&M University; a B.A. (Hons) magna cum laude from Ursinus College where she was a Queen Noor-Ursinus College Scholar; and diplomas from Harvard Business School Publishing and France’s Université Marc Bloch.
