He was a Fulbright Fellow at Johns Hopkins University (Baltimore), a Robert McNamara Fellow at The World Bank, and a CBS Fellow at Oxford University. He is a member of the Scientific Advisory Board of the (Central) Bank of Finland and was a visiting scholar (usually more than once) at the IMF, World Bank, European Commission, University of Michigan, ETH, USC, Bonn, UCL and Stockholm.
