Martin Boileau is a professor whose research interests are in macroeconomics, international finance, and corporate finance. The main focus of his research is the extension and evaluation of dynamic and stochastic models of economic behavior. In particular, the models are tested for their abilities to explain the persistence of business cycle fluctuations, the different asset pricing puzzles, the behavior of the current account and interest differentials, and the behavior of firm investment and cash policies.
