He was a principal on both the National Economic Council and the National Security Council, as well as President Clinton’s personal representative (sherpa) to the G7 group of industrialized nations.

Between periods of government service, Professor Tarullo taught for fifteen years at Georgetown and Harvard.  He was also a visiting professor at Princeton and the University of Basel.

Tarullo is a member of the Advisory Board of Autonomous Research and a member of the Advisory Committee for the Yale Program on Financial Stability. He also advises on the development of a Central Bank Transparency Code for the International Monetary Fund.
