Dr. Terrie Walmsley

Terrie Walmsley is an Associate Professor in the Department of Agricultural Economics at Purdue University, USA. Walmsley is involved in research and supervising graduate students. Walmsley was also the Director of the Center for Global Trade Analysis from 2005 to 2013. In that role she managed the Center, organized the Center's Dynamic GTAP short course and annual conference, and oversaw the GTAP Data Base construction.

Walmsley is interested in how the movement of goods, services, money, people, weather, water..... across country borders effects the global economy, poverty and welfare. Walmsley has done extensive work modelling international migration and capital flows. Her current projects include the development of modelling tools for undertaking supply chain analysis (GTAP-SC); modelling internal labor mobility for analysis of employment issues (with the Globe model); and the inclusion of multiple households into the global framework (MyGTAP). Walmsley is also working on the development of an R23 model and database for the World Bank.

After completing her PhD with Professor Alan Powell at Monash University, Australia, Walmsley joined the Center for Global Trade Analysis as a post-doctoral research fellow where she worked on China's accession to the WTO and the Dynamic GTAP model. Walmsley then moved to the United Kingdom where she was a lecturer in the Department of Economics at the University of Sheffield where she taught macroeconomics, International Trade and International Economics. Her research at this time included analyzing the impact of free trade agreements in Asia and with Africa and the global impact of the Mode 4, the temporary movement of people.

In 2003 she moved back to the Center for Global Trade Analysis, where she became the Director in 2005. Walmsley developed the GMig2 global bilateral migration model and database that has been used to examine issues related to migration in Asia and North America. This database was also used in the World Bank's 2006 Global Economic Prospects and was recently extended to create a times series bilateral migration database by gender. Walmsley is also co-editor, with Dr Elena Ianchovichina from the World Bank, of a book documenting the Dynamic GTAP model and the welfare decomposition simulation, developed by Walmsley. The book provides a number of illustrative applications of the model to global trade and environmental policy.

Walmsley has also been very active in the development of the GTAP Data Base (versions 5-8). In this role she has actively worked towards improving the quality and coverage of the country IO data in GTAP, and in particular the inclusion of more African countries. Walmsley was also been responsible for the addition of the satellite data sets and the recent inclusion of additional labor splits to be released in version 9.

Walmsley has had research grants with the World Bank, Asian Development Bank, US International Trade Commission, European Commission, Commonwealth Secretariat, UN Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific, UN Economic Commission for Africa, Japanese International Cooperation Agency (JICA), the Ford Foundation, Inter-American Development Bank, OECD, Department for International Development (UK), Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA), and the Japanese Ministry of Trade and Industry and the Mitsubishi Research Institute.
