Sahil's research interests revolve around behavioral New-Keynesian Dynamic Stochastic General Equilibrium (DSGE) models, focusing on monetary and fiscal policy for both closed and open economies. His doctoral thesis focuses on bounded rational expectations in standard Open economy New Keynesian models to study the monetary policy and exchange rate dynamics. His work shows that the inclusion of boundedly rational agents significantly mitigates many "puzzling" aspects of the relationship between exchange rates and interest rates.
