Felicia A. Grey, Ph.D., is a trained educator, political economist and trade law specialist. Grey's research uses formal models, case studies and the information theory approach to examine how exorbitant dispute settlement costs can preclude legitimate participation from aggrieved parties in the World Trade Organization’s Dispute Settlement Body (DSB). Her case studies include trade disputes between China and Jamaica, the United States and Mexico and Guatemala and Mexico.

Grey is the author of the book, States and Non-participatory Memberships at the WTO and several peer-reviewed articles which have been published in the Journal of International Dispute Settlement, the International Trade Journal and Digest of Middle East Studies. She is a recipient of numerous scholarships and awards, which include the Fulbright Graduate scholarship from the U.S. Department of State and the Governor General Youth Award for Excellence in Academics and Volunteerism in Jamaica.
