Stephen Cecchetti joined the Brandeis faculty in 2003. He had previously taught at New York University Graduate School of Business and at the Economics Department of Ohio State University. More recently, he has been a Visiting Professor of Economics at Princeton University and Boston College. He was formerly Executive Vice President and Director of Research at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York.
His research interests include inflation and price measurement, monetary policy, macroeconomic theory, the economics of the Great Depression and financial economics. His initial work concentrated on the theoretical basis and empirical plausibility of new Keynesian models of the business cycle that are based on nominal rigidities. More recently, he has developed new measures of core inflation, and examined how monetary policy can be used to control aggregate price movements.
