Roland Meeks

​Senior Economist - Monetary Assessment and Strategy Division


Roland is a macroeconomist whose research focus is the linkages between the financial and the real side of the economy. His published work includes empirical studies of the effect of financial disturbances on the aggregate economy, and theoretical modelling of the shadow bank system. Roland is also interested in functional time series, which he has applied to models of the term structure of interest rates, and in his current research, to the dynamics of inflation expectations.
