Bio
Jerry retired from the International Monetary Fund in 2015. He last served as Deputy Director of the Asia and Pacific Department at the Fund, where he led the institution's work on India, Korea, Myanmar, Singapore and Japan. He served in a number of other positions at the Fund, including as Senior Advisor in the Office of the Managing Director, and as a Division Chief in the European Department, where he led the Fund’s work on several Easter European countries. Jerry has recently spent several semesters as a Visiting Scholar at Tokyo University Graduate School of Public Policy. He is also currently also serving as a consultant to the IMF's Institute for Capacity Development, helping to design and teach classes to Asian and European country officials. He is very much enjoying teaching at AU, which is a return to his professional roots—he was an assistant professor at Tulane University more than 25 years ago.
