Speaker biography

Ricardo Reis is a Professor of Economics at Columbia University, on leave at the London School of Economics and Political Science, and a senior George fellow at the Bank of England. He received his B.Sc. degree from the LSE in 1999 and his Ph.D. from Harvard in 2004. He is affiliated with the NBER, the CEPR, the ESRC Center for Macroeconomics, and he is an academic advisor at the Federal Reserve Banks of New York and Richmond.

He is the chief editor of the Journal of Monetary Economics and sits on the editorial boards of the Journal of Economic Literature and the Economic Journal. His main area of research is macroeconomics, both theoretical and applied. Some of his past work focused on theories of inattention, models of sticky information, inflation dynamics, price indices, and the study of monetary and fiscal policy. Current work investigates the role of fiscal automatic stabilizers, the financial strength of central banks pursuing unconventional policies, and the measurement of valuation-relevant inflation.
