Professor Kamil Yılmaz from the Department of Economics received the TÜBİTAK 2247-A National Leader Program Grant, 2021, with the project titled “Inflation Connectedness and the Gravity Model.” With this project, Professor Yılmaz intends to econometrically model how inflation shocks spread across regions of a country using the gravity model, a model that has been so successful in the international trade literature and identify the factors that have an impact on this process. Wholehearted congratulations to Prof. Kamil Yılmaz for this outstanding accomplishment and best wishes for his continued success.
