Booth professor Anil Kashyap has been appointed to serve on the Financial Research Advisory Committee of the U.S. Department of the Treasury for his expertise in banking and monetary policy.

The Department announced Kashyap’s appointment, along with 29 other professionals in economics, finance, data and risk management, and information technology.

According to a University release, the committee works to advise the Office of Financial Research in the Department of Treasury so they can improve and develop the ways they perform “data management, data standards, and research methodologies.”

Kashyap began working at Booth in 1991 and also conducts research on business cycles, corporate finance, and price setting. This is not the first advisory committee position for Kashyap—he is also a consultant for the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago and advises the Federal Reserve Bank of New York.
