Welcome to my website!
My name is Brendan Berthold and I am a PhD Candidate in Economics at the University of Lausanne. My research is at the intersection between macroeconomics and finance. I’m also currently working as a scientific collaborator at the CREA Swiss Institute of Applied Economics where I am responsible for the analysis of quarterly industry forecasts as well as the lead developer of a Swiss GDP forecasting model. I’ve previously contributed to research projects at the Bank of England and the Swiss National Bank. I am also an avid R user and generally interested in projects involving macroeconomics, finance, and coding.
My paper "The Macroeconomic Implications of Uncertainty and Risk Aversion Shocks" is now Reject & Resubmit at the European Economic Review
New draft of our paper "Foreign Exchange Interventions with UIP and CIP deviations: The Case of Small Safe-Haven Economies" (joint with P. Bacchetta and K. Benhima) is now available
