I am a Senior Economist at the Federal Reserve Board of Governors. I work in the Trade and Financial Studies section of the Division of International Finance. I also teach at Johns Hopkins University.
I received my Ph.D. in Economics at the University of Minnesota in 2012 under the supervision of Tim Kehoe and Fabrizio Perri (co-advisors), and Cristina Arellano.
I also hold electrical and computer engineering degrees from Georgia Tech and Supélec in France. I was born and grew up in Togo. My mother is from Ghana. My wife was born in Haiti.
