I lead the Institute’s data-driven efforts aimed at influencing global policy issues in international finance (systemic risk, financial stability, ESG investing, Tech, capital flows), health economics (public health risks, health disparities), and regional economics (regional competitiveness, innovation, disparities). I rely on machine learning tools, standard econometrics, and analytical reasoning to draw data-driven recommendations. Previously,  as a central banker and an academic, my research involved creating new statistical tools and approaches to gain insights into empirical issues in economics such as exchange rate persistence, co-movement on markets, or convergence of euro area inflation.
