Dr. Rozlyn Engel (CSR)
Rozlyn Engel is a new Distinguished Research Fellow in the areas of international political economy and economics of national security. Most recently a member of the economics faculty at the U.S. Military Academy (2003-2011), Rozlyn has taught upper-level courses in international economics, regional economics (primarily Europe and Africa), macroeconomics, microeconomics, and economics of public policy. Her teaching expertise in economics has culminated in an interactive textbook in microeconomic principles that is scheduled for release in fall 2012.
An active scholar, she participates regularly in the National Bureau of Economic Research Summer Institute workshop in economics of national security and the Western Economics Association sessions in defense economics. Her research interests fall squarely at the intersection of economics and national security--particularly, economic dimensions of regional stability and empirical analysis of military manpower issues. She has contributed papers to the Project on National Security Reform and to the sixth edition of American National Security, as well as several articles to peer-reviewed journals.
She holds a Ph.D. in economics from Columbia University and a master's degree in European economic history from the London School of Economics. She also has held research and editorial positions at the International Monetary Fund, the Brookings Institution, and the U.S. Senate.
