“The Bank of Canada is pleased to present this year’s Governor’s Award to Professor Trebbi,” said Mark Carney, Governor of the Bank of Canada. “Through his outstanding research, he will continue to contribute important insights to the field of economics during a critical period for the global economy.”
Professor Trebbi has published widely in the areas of housing and banking regulation, political institutions and their design, and the political economy of the 2008–09 crisis. His current research focuses on the political economy dynamics related to the financial crisis, consistency of financial sector regulation and the impact of housing market dynamics on the real economy.
“Professor Trebbi is conducting highly relevant, insightful and original work. The Bank is pleased to recognize his talent and support his important research,” said the Governor.
The Governor’s Award recognizes outstanding academics at a relatively early stage in their careers who are working at Canadian universities in areas of research critical to the Bank of Canada’s mandate. The award is granted for a two-year, non-renewable term.
