Professor Dixit received his Ph.D. in Economics from the University of Minnesota. He is a Macroeconomist who uses tools in dynamic contracting theory to address issues in Public Finance, Monetary Economics and Development Economics. His dissertation studied how contractual frictions interact with the amount of risk people choose to bear; rules that a government can impose on itself to discipline time-inconsistent behavior; and efficient demonetization policies. Professor Dixit previously worked at the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis and the International Monetary Fund. Prior to his Ph.D., he graduated from the University of Michigan—Ann Arbor, with concentrations in Economics and Mathematics.
