Alberto Ortiz (Ph.D., 2009, Boston University) is interested in Macroeconomics, International, and Development Economics. His research focuses on developing empirically viable macroeconomic models to generate evidence for emerging market economies. He estimates dynamic general equilibrium models using Bayesian methods to measure the importance of credit market imperfections, to characterize the evolution of monetary policies, and to analyze optimal monetary and fiscal policy responses to adverse capital account shocks during periods of global capital market turmoil. His teaching experience includes courses in Monetary and Banking Institutions and Macroeconomic Analysis at Boston University, and a course in International Financial Policy at the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University.
