Matteo Maggiori is an Associate Professor of Economics at Harvard University. His research focuses on international macroeconomics and finance. His research topics have included the analysis of exchange rate dynamics, global capital flows, the international monetary and financial system, bubbles, and very long-run discount rates. His theoretical and empirical work on exchange rates and capital flows highlight the central role of financial imperfections in understanding global economic outcomes. His research sheds light on exchange rate dynamics and their connection to the limited risk bearing capacity of financiers, the role of the U.S. and the dollar in the international monetary system, competition among reserve currencies, and investor and firm preferences for raising capital across borders in different currencies.
He is a faculty research fellow at the National Bureau of Economic Research and a research affiliate at the Center for Economic Policy Research. His research has been funded by the National Science Foundation (CAREER grant), awarded the 2019 Guggenheim Fellowship, selected for the 2012 Review of Economic Studies May Meetings (European Tour), and won the 2013 and 2018 AQR Insight Award and the 2017 AQR Young Researcher Award. He received his PhD from the University of California at Berkeley.
