Philippe Andrade is a senior economist and policy advisor in the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston Research Department. His research interests include macroeconomics and monetary economics. His research focuses on the formation of expectations, in particular inflation expectations, and their contribution to the transmission of monetary policy and to macroeconomic fluctuations. Andrade also has explored central banks’ reaction to the Great Recession, analyzing the impact of their unconventional policies—with a particular emphasis on communication and forward guidance—and discussing potential adjustments of their strategy to the post-crisis environment. He also has written papers on the impact of global shocks on international price dynamics.
Andrade joined the Boston Fed in 2019 after serving as the head of the Monetary Policy Division at the Banque de France. Previously, he held senior economist positions at the European Central Bank and at Banque de France. He was a professor at the University of Caen and an assistant professor at the University of Cergy, and he taught at Ecole Polytechnique, HEC Lausanne, and Sciences Po. He also has been a visiting scholar at the New York Fed and the European University Institute.
