From 2015 to 2018, he was also a member of missions of the International Monetary Fund to support a number of countries to enhance their macroprudential frameworks. Until 2011, Doug worked in the private sector in Brazilian financial markets. His current research focuses on bank loan loss provisioning behaviour, bank lending during the Covid-19 crisis, and the differences between bank and fintech finance.
