Associate Professor of Economics
Currently, Bianchi’s main research interests involve the role of agents’ beliefs in explaining changes in the reduced form properties of the macroeconomy. Bianchi has also done work on the interaction between the real economy and the term structure of interest rates and on the role of rare events in shaping agents’ expectations.
