I am an Assistant Professor of Applied Macroeconomics at the University of Neuchâtel and Research Fellow at the KOF Swiss Economic Institute, ETH Zurich. I also held part-time teaching positions at the University of Bern and the Study Center Gerzensee. Before turning to academia, I worked as Senior Economist at the Swiss National Bank.
My research focuses on inflation and exchange rate dynamics, the role of different monetary regimes, and nominal frictions. I propose econometric tools to quantify and deal with measurement error in 19th century inflation data. In addition, I work on measuring the impact of large exchange rate fluctuations on the price- and wage-setting behavior, as well as, labor demand in Switzerland. Finally, I analyze the effects of exit strategies with large central bank balance sheets.
