Title: Essays on Sectoral and Global Imbalances: The Role of Corporates

PhD Supervisor: Cedric Tille

Expected completion date: 2024

I am interested in market structure and how it influences the behavior of households and firms. My research looks at the evolution of corporate profitably over recent decades, its drivers, and implications for monetary and fiscal policy.




With a background in economic policy, Greg is now at the Graduate Institute and will complete his PhD in international macroeconomics early 2024. Before coming to Geneva, he worked several years as a research analyst at the IMF in the North Africa division. Later, he worked at an investment fund and provided primary research on emerging markets. He is currently a teaching assistant for introductory macroeconomics.
