Margarita Rubio

Assistant Professor

"We live in a turbulent and difficult economic environment in which models and beliefs we took for granted do not apply anymore. These are precisely the times in which economists are most needed. The current crisis has made it clear that we do not fully understand how financial markets, the housing sector, and the real economy interact. 

My research focuses on constructing models that are able to capture all these linkages to help us disentangling these complicated interactions. Within this framework, we can propose policy interventions to central banks and other international institutions to improve the current situation and avoid future crises. And this is something that we all definitely want!"
