As someone who enjoys finding rigorous yet pragmatic ways to make sense of complex questions, my career path has taken me from econometrician to professor of economics, central banker, and think tanker. Throughout my various roles, I have always been focused on finding the best approaches to draw meaningful insights from data to inform smart decisions.
Currently, I serve as deputy head of financial stability at the Reserve Bank of Australia.
Until March 2023, as Chief Research Officer and head of Research at the Milken Institute, a US-based think tank, I led and managed highly skilled teams to conduct analytical work on ESG, Tech, global capital flows, inequalities and diversity, and public health risks. My aim was to leverage machine learning tools, standard econometrics, and analytical reasoning to gain actionable insights. Additionally, I was a co-chair of the T20 task force on global financial architecture, an advisory committee to the G20.
Before that, I led research and policy teams in international finance and domestic economic analysis at the Banque de France. I started my professional journey as a professor of Economics at the University of Cincinnati, specializing in time series econometrics and international finance.
When I am not working, I enjoy 🥊🦵, 🏄♀️,🏕️🧳… etc.
