I am a macroeconomist. My interests lie in study of fiscal policy, business cycles, monetary economics, inventories and applied econometrics. Most recently, together with Stephen Hansen, I have a series of papers examining the way monetary policy is made and how institutional design features of central banks and their monetary policy committees influence the decisions. Much of the recent research uses the tools of computational linguistics to understand communication and deliberation in central banks. My research has been published research in many top journals including the Quarterly Journal of Economics, Review of Economic Studies, the Journal of Monetary Economics, the Review of Economics and Statistics and the Journal of Applied Econometrics.
