Judit Temesvary earned her Ph.D. and master's degree in economics from Cornell University, with a primary focus on macroeconomics, with minor fields of international and empirical economics. Her research focuses on the relationship between the macro-economy and financial institutions’ activities, with a special interest in commercial banks. The primary paper in her dissertation examines the determinants of U.S. banks’ decisions to lend to foreign countries. Temesvary's main areas of interest are banks’ global lending activities and their effects on national economies. She is also interested in how national and global bank regulations can influence the macroeconomic effects of banks. Previously Temesvary taught several macroeconomics courses at Cornell. At Hamilton, she will be teaching courses on macroeconomics and financial institutions.
