Research


I am an empirical macroeconomist, primarily interested in questions driven by monetary policy concerns. I have a keen interest in credit dynamics, financial conditions, exchange rates, and commodity prices; I am interested in how these variables move and what factors drive these movements, as well as how these movements affect economic growth, consumption choices, international trade and capital flows, prices, and financial contagion.


My broad research interests are in...

  • international macroeconomics

  • financial and monetary economics

  • macroeconometrics and forecasting

Working papers [available on request]

  1. "Life Before Super Thursday: Chasing Central Bank Information Effects", with Marco Pinchetti

  2. "Global Spillovers of the Fed Information Effect", with Marco Pinchetti
