Welcome to the website of
 Andrés Fernández Martin. 

I am Senior Economist at the Research Department of the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) in Washington D.C. I hold a Ph.D. in Economics from Rutgers University. 

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 capital controls, monetary policy, the presence of financial and labor market frictions, and the co-movement in the macro dynamics of emerging economies.
