Anton Korinek joined the Department of Economics at Johns Hopkins University in 2013. He is also a Faculty Research Fellow at the NBER. He received his PhD from Columbia University in 2007 after three years of work experience in the financial sector. He has also worked at the University of Maryland and has been a visiting scholar at Harvard University, the World Bank, the IMF, the BIS and the Bundesbank.
His area of expertise is international finance and macroeconomics. In his current research, Korinek focuses on capital controls and macro-prudential regulation as policy instruments to reduce the risk of future financial crises. He investigates the global spillover effects of such policy measures as well as their implications for income inequality. He has won several fellowships and awards for this work, most recently from the Institute for New Economic Thinking.
