|“My research interests are in macroeconomics, monetary economics, time-series econometrics, and international monetary economics. In particular my recent papers and publications have focused on examining macroeconomic models of inflation dynamics. Specifically, my research has focused on the applicability of both traditional and New Keynesian Phillips curves to explaining past inflation behavior, as well as making forecasts of future inflation. My research agenda also includes open economy macroeconomic issues, where I have examined the impact of globalization on inflation processes. In the near future I hope to examine price change-output tradeoffs at the global level as well.”
