Volha Audzei | Ph.D. (economics)


My research interests lie in macroeconomic modelling with financial frictions, expectation formation and learning. In my dissertation I studied how relaxing the assumption of rational expectation modifies the output of macroeconomic models. In particularly I showed how imperfect information among the financial agents modifies their risk-taking decisions, the effect of monetary policy on banks’ lending or equilibrium selection.

I work in the Czech National Bank , Economic Research Division, Monetary Department.

In this work we consider a concept of sparse rationality (developed recently by Gabaix, 2014) as a selection tool in a model with multiple equilibria.
