Professor Bianchi is a leading scholar in the fields of monetary economics, finance and Bayesian time series econometrics.  A member of the NBER and CEPR, he currently serves as an associate editor of the Journal of Monetary Economics, Quantitative Economics, and the Journal of Applied Econometrics.  Prof. Bianchi is currently at Duke University.
His research has been featured in the leading journals of economics and finance, such as the American Economic Review, The Review of Economic Studies, the Journal of Finance, and Journal of Monetary Economics, among others.   Currently he is researching the role of agents’ beliefs in explaining macroeconomic dynamics, the interaction between monetary and fiscal policy, and the effects of the COVID recession.
The Louis J. Maccini Professorship, established in 2008, is a fitting tribute to Professor Emeritus Louis J.
