About Lucjan T. Orlowski

My research has focused on international financial markets, monetary policy regimes and their impact on macroeconomic and financial stability. I have been actively involved with the European Union's eastern enlargement, particularly the design of monetary and financial integration strategies. My recent work involves modeling and assessing financial risk, particularly in the aftermath of the global financial crisis.
On September 11, 2014, Dr. Orlowski received a research grant of $25,000 from the Chicago Mercantile Exchange Foundation to conduct research on the impact of commodity futures on macroeconomic fundamentals. This grant will be matched with another $25,000 from Mr. Richard M. Schaeffer, a member of the Sacred Heart University Board of Trustees, for a total of $50,000.
