Trebbi’s current research focuses on the political economy dynamics related to the financial crisis, consistency of financial sector regulation and the impact of housing market dynamics on the real economy.

The Governor’s Award recognizes outstanding academics at a relatively early stage in their careers who are working at Canadian universities in areas of research critical to the Bank of Canada’s mandate.
