Christopher J. Nekarda
I graduated from the University of California, Berkeley in 2000 with highest honors in economics. I spent two years at the Brookings Institution as the statistical associate editor of the Brookings Papers on Economics Activity before beginning a doctorate in economics. I received my Ph.D. from the University of California, San Diego in December 2008. I joined the macroeconomic analysis section of the Federal Reserve Board of Governors in April 2009.
My research focuses on macroeconomics, labor markets, and their interaction over business cycle. I am interested in questions about worker and job allocation, geographic mobility, and current labor market developments.
