Because of the applied focus of my research and my 15 years of experience as a
research economist at the Federal Reserve, I give speeches on a broad range of
macroeconomic topics to non-academic audiences. The topics range from global
economic developments, to monetary policy, to labor market conditions. The
audiences that I have spoken to include business executives, hedge-fund managers,
HR executives, workforce development staff, and, of course, policy makers. Below is
a list of recent presentations.
