January 31, 2023 — The St. Louis Fed's Research Division is ranked in the top 1% of all economics research departments worldwide, thanks to the scholarly work of our economists. Last year, three economists joined the Division.

Alexander Bick is a Research officer who received his PhD from Goethe University Frankfurt in 2009. His research has focused on labor economics, economic growth, and development; his most current research has focused on documenting and understanding within and cross-country differences in labor supply, how public policies affect how much individuals work, and trends in working from home.

Jeremy Majerovitz is an associate economist who received his PhD from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 2022. His research focuses on macroeconomics and development. His recent work has focused on firm dynamics in rich and poor countries and on developing econometric tools for empirical macroeconomics.

Mark Wright is a senior vice president who received his PhD from the University of Chicago in 2001. He was previously senior vice president and director of research at the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis. His research has focused on sovereign debt, human capital, and capital flows.

Recent additions to the economist staff can always be found on our economists page. Research by our economists can be found in our working paper series, our publications, the St. Louis Fed's On the Economy blog, and on individual economists' pages.
