Welcome to the website of
 Andrés Fernández Martin. 

I am the head of the Research Department at the Central Bank of Chile since March 2019. Previously, I was Senior Economist at the Research Department of the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) in Washington D.C. between 2012 and 2019, and assistant professor at U. de Los Andes (Bogotá) between 2010 and 2011. I hold a Ph.D. in Economics from Rutgers University since 2010. 

My research focuses mainly on the macroeconomics of emerging market economies. One area of my research agenda is devoted to the study of the sources of business cycles in emerging economies, including driving forces of financial and real nature, with the use of dynamic stochastic general equilibrium models. I am also extending this framework to study commodity prices, capital controls, monetary policy, the presence of financial and labor market frictions, and the co-movement in the macro dynamics of emerging economies.
