Michael McMahon joined Oxford in September 2017, prior to which he was an Associate Professor at the University of Warwick (from 2008). He graduated from Trinity College Dublin and then obtained an MSc from the London School of Economics, returning after three years working at the Bank of England for his MRes and PhD. He is a macroeconomist with particular interest in the study of fiscal policy, business cycles, monetary economics, inventories and applied econometrics. In addition to working for the Bank of England, he has visited numerous other central banks around the world. His most recent research examines the way monetary policy is made and communicated, and how institutional design features of central banks and their monetary policy committees influence the decisions.
The lecture, in Mordan Hall, will be followed by an audience Q and A session, and then a drinks reception. All are welcome and the event is open to the public.
