His research interests center on behavioral New-Keynesian DSGE models for the closed and open economy, focusing on monetary and fiscal policy. Currently, he is working on his thesis, which uses bounded rational expectations in otherwise standard Open economy New Keynesian models to study the monetary policy and exchange rate dynamics. His work shows that the introduction of boundedly rational agents successfully mitigates many "puzzling" aspects of the relationship between exchange rates and interest rates.
