Olivier Wang joined New York University Stern School of Business as an Assistant Professor of Finance in July 2019.

Professor Wang conducts research in macroeconomics, banking, and international finance, with a particular interest in monetary policy. His recent research studies how the secular decline in interest rates, observed in the US and other advanced countries, affects the macroeconomy through interactions between commercial banks’ lending and deposit-taking activities. He has also analyzed the link between rising product market concentration and monetary policy transmission, and how the interplay between incomplete exchange rate pass-through to import and export prices and currency mismatch in private balance sheets can constrain exchange rate policy in emerging markets.

Prior to joining NYU Stern, Professor Wang was a Teaching Assistant at MIT. He received the AQR Top Finance Graduate Award in 2019.

Professor Wang received his BA in Mathematics and MA in Economics from the École Normale Supérieure, and his PhD in Economics from MIT.
