Reis is a Research Associate of the National Bureau of Economic Research (Cambridge, Mass.), a Research Fellow of the Centre for Economic Policy Research (London), is a co-editor of the Journal of Monetary Economics, a member of the Board of Editors of the American Economic Review and the Journal of Economic Literature, and an associate editor of the Economic Journal and the Journal of Money, Credit and Banking. He is an academic advisor and visiting scholar at the Federal Reserve Banks of Minneapolis, New York, and Richmond. His main area of research is macroeconomics, both theoretical and applied. Some of his past work has focused on theories of inattention, models of sticky information, inflation dynamics, price indices, and the study of monetary and fiscal policy. More recent work investigates the role of fiscal automatic stabilizers in U.S. recessions, the targeting of liquidity injections by central banks during crises, and the financial strength and exposure of central banks pursuing unconventional policies.
