His current research interests include issues in international finance such as optimal levels of international reserves, the role of external factors on growth, the relevance of balance-sheet effects and financial integration in determining the likelihood of experiencing Sudden Stops in capital flows, as well as how countries recover from output collapses following Sudden Stops. He has also worked on the impact of Sudden Stops in the variance of relative prices, fiscal sustainability under Sudden Stops, and amplification effects of collateral constraints on the real exchange rate and output.
