Dr. Ahmad's major field of reseach lies in monetary economics. He also has research interests that lie in the area of international macroeconomics, heterogenous agent models, threshold models and models that incorporate nonlinear dynamics. He has published the results of his research in the Quarterly Review of Economics and Finance, Economics Letters, Journal of Economics and Finance, Applied Economics, and is currently working on several research projects.

Broadly speaking, much of Dr. Ahmad's current research involves examining monetary policy and trying to back out the inflation target that the Federal Reserve had been targeting historically. Other research examines the time series properties and dynamics of both nominal and real exchange rates, as well as the impact of temporal aggregation in estimating the dynamics of aggregated data.
