Research keywords: Applied Macroeconomics and Development Economics
Rachel's interests are applied macroeconomics, development economics and applied econometrics. She is currently working on the empirical analysis of a DSGE model with sticky prices and a vertical input-output structure, to model output persistence (in response to a monetary policy shock) of economies at different levels of development. She is also working on the econometric analysis of developing country business cycles; including turning point analysis of business cycle duration and timing, and statistical analysis of persistence, volatility, correlations with output, cross-country quantity correlations and real exchange rate correlations.
