Program for Resident Scholars
The Research and Statistics Group's Program for Resident Scholars brings to the Bank outstanding researchers with an international reputation.
About the Program
resident scholar pictureResident scholars are selected from the top academic and policy institutions in fields related to the Bank’s broad policy interests. The scholars pursue their own research while providing intellectual leadership by advising and collaborating with our staff of more than sixty economists. They present their own work at Research Group seminars and attend presentations by others.

The resident scholars also work closely with the director of research, and have the opportunity to contribute to the Bank's main policymaking discussions on topics such as monetary policy and macroeconomics, international economics, banking supervision and regulation, capital markets, financial stability, and applied microeconomics with an emphasis on regional and national issues.

The program complements our Visiting Scholars Program, in which economists from major research institutions present their own work and make themselves available to discuss our staff's current research.
Current Resident Scholar
For the 2019-20 academic year, the Research and Statistics Group is pleased to have in residence Simon Gilchrist, Professor of Economics at New York University.

Professor Gilchrist’s research interests relate to monetary economics and applied macroeconomics. Much of his research focuses on fluctuations in financial markets and their consequences for real economic activity, inflation dynamics, and the conduct of monetary policy. His research has been published in outlets including the American Economic Journal: Macroeconomics, the American Economic Review, the Journal of Monetary Economics, the Journal of Political Economy, and the Quarterly Journal of Economics. Gilchrist is a research associate at the National Bureau of Economic Research and is currently serving as managing editor at the American Economic Journal: Macroeconomics.

Prior to arriving at New York University, Gilchrist was a professor at Boston University and also served as a staff economist at the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System. In recent years, he has served as an academic consultant to the Board as well as to the Bank of Canada, Bank of England, Banque de France, Bank of Japan, the Federal Reserve Banks of Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, New York, and San Francisco, and the International Monetary Fund.
