Claire and her thesis

The thesis "Essays on Macroeconomics, Monetary Policy and Firm Heterogeneity" consists of four self-contained essays, which investigate the role of firm heterogeneity for monetary policy transmission and shed light on different aspects.

This work is motivated by the fact that firm responses to monetary policy are a central part of the overall transmission, so it is important to better understand its heterogeneous effects and underlying mechanisms. 

Claire will join Morgan Stanley and their Macro Research Department (European Economics Team) in the fall.
