Riccardo Trezzi, PhD economist by training, is the founder of Underlying Inflation.
After receiving his Ph.D. in Economics from the University of Cambridge in the U.K., Riccardo worked on the inflation desk of the Federal Reserve Board of Governors in Washington D.C. for several years where he regularly briefed Board members and contributed to the Fed staff forecast. After the Fed Board, Riccardo joined the inflation desk of the European Central Bank in Frankfurt where he contributed to the 2020-2021 ECB strategy review. Riccardo has published several academic papers on peer reviewed international journals on several topics including inflation dynamics, the labor market, and households’ consumption.
In his free time, you can find him cycling, hiking on Swiss Alps or gardening in his Japanese Bonsai garden.
