Christian Wipf

I am an Economist at the Financial Stability Division of the Austrian National Bank. I obtained my PhD at the University of Bern in 2020.

My research interests are in macroeconomics, monetary economics, banking and financial economics.

I have recently worked on the current inflationary spike, optimal inflation targets, narrow banking and CBDC proposals, and monetary policy transmission since the Great Financial Crisis.

Please see my cv and my resume for more details.
