Research Economist


Andres Fernandez





Andrés Fernández is a Research Economist in the Research Department at the Inter-American Development Bank. He holds a Ph.D. in Economics from Rutgers University and previously worked as Assistant Professor at the Universidad de Los Andes in Bogotá, Colombia. His main research agenda focuses on building, calibrating and estimating dynamic stochastic general equilibrium models for emerging economies. One area of his research agenda is devoted to the study of the sources of business cycles in emerging economies including driving forces of financial and real nature. He has also extended this framework to study intrinsic features of Latin American economies such as the presence of financial frictions and the significant co-movement in the macro dynamics of the economies in the region. Another area he is currently working on is extending this class of models to account for the observed dynamic patterns of labor markets in Latin American economies.
