Isabelle is a researcher in behavioral macroeconomics and finance. She works on the interactions between theoretical frameworks such as learning and heterogeneous agent models and empirical evidence on behaviors and expectations from lab and survey experiments. In her role as principal researcher at the Bank of Canada her research has included policy regarding the interactions between monetary and fiscal interventions in low-interest rate environments, central banks' communication, inflation targeting renewal and unconventional monetary policies.
