Elisheva R. Stern

Ph.D. in Economics

Temple University 2022

Hello, and welcome! I am a Ph.D. graduate from the Department of Economics at Temple University, currently on the job market (2023). Previously, I received my B.A. in Mathematical Economics, Magna Cum Laude, from Temple University College of Science and Technology in 2013.

My research interest includes understanding how the central bank can efficiently influence interest rates alongside banks' risk tradeoffs. I am particularly interested in examining how differences across the type of banks matter for policy pass-through. I use quantitative models to understand monetary policy's effect on banks' balance-sheet and lending portfolio and models that predict the federal funds rate given observations of the differences across types of banks and other federal funds market participants.
