Using applied empirical tools her research focuses on answering questions such as: (1) How does monetary policy affect capital flows? (2) What monetary policy tools and frameworks can countries use to shield themselves from the booms and busts associated with volatile capital flows? 3) What policies would help developing countries improve their capability for issuing debt in domestic currency? Her work has been published in top field journals such as the Journal of International Economics and the Journal of International Money and Finance.
