Welcome! I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Economics at Tufts University.

My fields of interest are Macroeconomics, Macro-Labor, International Macroeconomics, and Monetary Economics. I am particularly interested in the study of labor market dynamics, financial frictions, and business cycles in developing and emerging economies, the importance of sectoral heterogeneity for the behavior of short-run economic activity, and the role of macro policy in mitigating the impact of adverse shocks to the economy.
