I am a macroeconomist with broad interests in international macroeconomics, international trade, and the economics of heterogeneity across firms, workers, and locations.
Prior to joining the Minneapolis Fed, I was an Assistant Professor of Economics at the University of Notre Dame. Before joining Notre Dame, I was a Senior Economist at the Federal Reserve Board of Governors in the Trade and Financial Studies section of the Division of International Finance. I also taught at Johns Hopkins University.
I received my Ph.D. in Economics at the University of Minnesota under the supervision of Tim Kehoe, Fabrizio Perri, and Cristina Arellano. I also hold electrical and computer engineering degrees from Georgia Tech and Supélec (now Centrale-Supélec) in France.
