Katheryn N. Russ

Faculty Research Fellow at National Bureau Of Economic Research (NBER), Associate Professor of Economics at University of California, Davis

Katheryn Russ specialises in research at the nexus of international trade and finance. Her work has juxtaposed large multinationals next to small domestic firms in models of how exchange rate policy affects country welfare, modeled the effect of global banks on the availability and pricing of loans, and showed mathematically the implications of market power among heterogeneous exporters for price volatility and the gains from trade liberalisation. She received a Ph.D. in Economics from Johns Hopkins University in 2005 and has been a Visiting Scholar at Banque de France, Deutsche Bundesbank, and the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis. She is currently an Associate Professor of Economics at the University of California, Davis, a Research Fellow at the National Bureau of Economic Research, a visiting scholar at the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco, and an Associate of the Globalization and Monetary Policy Institute at the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas.
