The International Monetary Fund (IMF) has appointed Gita Gopinath, a professor at Harvard University, as its new Chief Economist. She will succeed Maurice (Maury) Obstfeld, who announced in July that he would retire at the end of 2018.

“Gita is one of the world’s outstanding economists, with impeccable academic credentials, a proven track record of intellectual leadership, and extensive international experience,” said IMF Managing Director Christine Lagarde. “All this makes her exceptionally well-placed to lead our Research Department at this important juncture. I am delighted to name such a talented figure as our Chief Economist.” Gopinath is famous for her work on currency movements.

Gopinath was born and grew up in India. She is a US citizen now. She received her PhD in economics from Princeton University in 2001 after earning a BA from the University of Delhi and MA degrees from both the Delhi School of Economics and University of Washington.

After the recent appointment, Gopinath will resign as the economic adviser of the Kerala Chief Minister.
