Nizamul Islam holds a PhD in Economics from the University of Gothenburg (Sweden). Currently, he is a research fellow at the Department of living conditions, LISER Luxembourg. His interest is in Optimal Tax, Labour supply, Microsimulation, Basic income, Tax-benefit reform, and Poverty dynamics. Nizamul Islam is a Visiting Fellow at the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Taxation and Customs Union (DG TAXUD) for 2017-2020 (https://ec.europa.eu/taxation_customs/sites/taxation/files/list_of_selected_experts.pdf). As a fellow, Islam has opportunities to collaborate with members of DG TAXUD staff, to present and/or discuss research work and to share their knowledge in the area of quantitative methods, economic modelling and public economics theory, namely in the areas of taxation policy and tax reforms. Islam has particular expertise in software programming and econometric computing for model analysis. Jointly with Professor Lennart Flood, he has developed a behavioural microsimulation model for Luxembourg ’LuxTaxBen’. He is country (Luxembourg) team member of EUROMOD. His publication record includes Economic modelling, Empirical Economics, Economic Letters, Applied Economics Letters, Nordic Tax Journal, The Japanese Economic Review, and International Journal of Microsimulation.
