Alok Johri 

Chair of Graduate Studies, Economics | Professor

 

My research interests are in many areas of macroeconomics, monetary economics and their intersections with international economics and development. My recent interests lie in understanding the economics of sovereign defaults and the government sector more generally with an emphasis on the role of institutions and political economy. Earlier in my career, I was more focused on business cycles in closed and open economies.
