William B. Peterman

Section Chief
Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System


I graduated from the Emory University in 2003 with highest honors in economics and mathematics. In the summer of 2011, I received my Ph.D. from the University of California, San Diego. I joined the fiscal analysis section of the Federal Reserve Board of Governors in June 2011.

My research focuses on macroeconomics, computational economics, and public finance. I am interested in questions about optimal taxation solved in macroeconomic models.
