Alexander Meyer-Gohde receives DFG funding for research project on macroeconomic models

Prof. Alexander Meyer-Gohde

Alexander Meyer-Gohde has received the funding approval for a research project on macroeconomic models from German Research Foundation (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft, DFG). The DFG will fund the project titled „Numerical diagnostics and improvements for the solution of linear dynamic macroeconomic models“ over the next three years with an amount of 250,000 euros. Meyer-Gohde has held the Chair of Financial Markets and Macroeconomics since April 2018 and conducts research at the Institute for Monetary and Financial Stability (IMFS) at Goethe University.

Meyer-Gohde’s research concentrates on the methodological foundations of macroeconomics, in particular the numerical, theoretical, and empirical foundations, and its interaction with financial markets. In his research project funded by the DFC, Meyer-Gohde will quantify numerical limitations of current linear solutions methods for dynamic stochastic general equilibrium models based on recent advances from applied mathematics and thus provide restrictions on monetary policy.

Before coming to Frankfurt, Meyer-Gohde held various positions in Hamburg, Berlin, and Potsdam. He earned his master‘s at the Humboldt-Unversität zu Berlin and his doctorate from the Technische Universität Berlin. He obtained his bachelor‘s from Colorado State University in his home state before moving to Germany.
