(updated January 2019)
In addition to my role as a faculty member at MIT, I am engaged in a number of outside activities. In the last three years, I have been:
(i) President of the National Bureau of Economic Research, a non-profit organization devoted to economic research (www.nber.org).
(ii) Trustee of the College Retirement Equity Fund (CREF) and independent director of the TIAA-CREF mutual funds (www.tiaa-cref.org).
(iii) Trustee of the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation (www.sloan.org).
(iv) Member of the Panel of Economic Advisers at the Congressional Budget Office (www.cbo.gov).
In addition to the activities listed above, I also periodically make presentations for which I receive compensation. During the period 2016-2018, I received more than $500 from each of the following organizations: Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, Davidson College, International Monetary Fund, Norges Bank Investment Management, RAND Corporation, University of California – Berkeley, University of Michigan, University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee, and Vulcan Corporation.
