Teaching activities

Juan currently teaches ECN202 Macroeconomic Principles, ECN324 Monetary Economics and ECN6660 Monetary Economics. Monetary economics studies the relationships between real economic variables (such as GDP and unemployment) and nominal variables (such as inflation and nominal interest rates).

His teaching covers both theory and applications, focusing on insights from the latest economics research as well as issues related to monetary policy. To this end, many of the models he uses are based on microeconomic foundations to ensure consistency between macro and microeconomics.
