Jerry recently retired from the International Monetary Fund. He last served as Deputy Director of the Asia and Pacific Department at the Fund, and has 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 former Soviet countries. 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 20 years ago. Jerry recently spent time as a Visiting Scholar at Tokyo University Graduate School of Public Policy. He is currently also serving as a consultant to the IMF-Singapore Training Institute, helping to design and teach classes to Asian country officials, and to Ashoka, an NGO, on its East Asia Program.
