Elisheva R. Stern

Ph.D. Candidate in Economics

Temple University


I am a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Economics at Temple University. I received my B.A. in Mathematical Economics, Magna Cum Laude, from the College of Science and Technology at Temple University in 2013. I am currently on the job market (2022).

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.
