Prior to joining ULSB in 2021 I worked at the University of Hong Kong. I received my PhD from New York University. I am an applied theorist with wide-ranging interests in different areas in Economics and Finance. My work largely focuses on the intersections of Macroeconomics with different subject areas in economics including Urban Economics, Financial Economics, Industrial Organization, Development Economics and Labour Economics. 


I am a member of the TAM research cluster in ULSB.
