Please join us for an invitation-only dinner for economists featuring Christopher J. Waller, senior vice president and director of research at the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis. Waller, who oversees a staff of nearly 40 economists, will speak about The Intersection of International and Domestic Monetary Policy. Q&A will follow.

Prior to joining the Fed in 2009, Waller was a professor and the Gilbert F. Schaefer Chair of Economics at the University of Notre Dame. He was also a research fellow with Notre Dame's Kellogg Institute for International Studies. Earlier, he was a professor and the Carol Martin Gatton Chair of Macroeconomics and Monetary Economics at the University of Kentucky. During that time, he was also a research fellow at the Center for European Integration Studies (ZEI) at the University of Bonn. Waller has also been a visiting scholar or taught elsewhere in Germany, in New Zealand, in Ukraine, at Indiana University, at Washington University in St. Louis and, in the mid-1990s, at the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis. 

Waller received his B.S. in economics from Bemidji State University in Minnesota in 1981, and his M.A. and Ph.D. from Washington State University in 1984 and 1985, respectively. His principal  research interests are monetary theory, political economy and macroeconomic theory. He has been extensively published in peer-reviewed journals. 

The Fed is deeply committed to nurturing relationships with economists in the Eighth District and to gathering anecdotal economic feedback. There is no cost to attend this program, but registration is required by Nov. 10.
