Associate Professor

About Carolin Pflueger

Carolin Pflueger is an Associate Professor at the Harris School of Public Policy. She is also a National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER) Faculty Research Fellow and Centre for Economic and Policy Research (CEPR) Research Affiliate. Her research is at the intersection of macroeconomics and finance and has been supported by the National Science Foundation.

She is particularly interested in how inflation and monetary policy are linked to financial markets. One strand of her recent and ongoing research develops models that link the riskiness of nominal Treasury bonds to the economic drivers of ``stagflations’’, or high inflation recessions.  A second strand of research focuses on exploiting rich data sources, such as cross-sectional data of economic forecasts and the cross-section of stock prices, to measure sophisticated agents’ perceptions of monetary policy and economic uncertainty, and understand how these perceptions impact the macroeconomy and financial markets.
