I am the Chair and Professor in the Department of Economics at Carleton University which I joined in 2005. I am also the Co-Director of the Centre for Monetary and Financial Economics at Carleton. I have held Visiting Professorships at the University of California, Berkeley, Vancouver School of Economics at the University of British Columbia and the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco. Prior to joining Carleton, I worked at the Bank of England in London, U.K., and the Bank of Canada in Ottawa. My research interests are in the area of Macroeconomics.
