PhD Candidate

Julian is a PhD candidate in the economics department at Boston University. His research interests span parts of international finance, macroeconomics, and monetary economics. Motivated by the European debt crisis, his current work explores the interaction of sovereign default risk and the financial system in structuring optimal bank recapitalization policy. Other projects include studying the effects of hedge fund contracting frictions in segmented financial markets, and what this may mean for the effectiveness of monetary policy.
Julian received a BA in economics from Columbia University and has previously worked as an economist in global macro research at Goldman Sachs. He has also gained experience at the German Federal Ministry of Finance, PIMCO, and as an adviser at Kensho, a financial technology company.
