Hello! Welcome to my homepage. I have joined the University of Liverpool as Professor of Economics. Before joining Liverpool, I served as an academic staff at Durham University, and I earned my graduate degrees from the University of British Columbia and the University of Michigan. My current research focuses on macroeconomic theory, monetary economics, economic growth, innovation and intellectual property rights. The results of my research have been published (or forthcoming) in journals, such as European Economic Review, International Economic Review, Journal of Development Economics, Journal of Economic Dynamics and Control, Journal of Economic Growth, Journal of Money, Credit and Banking, Macroeconomic Dynamics, and Review of Economic Dynamics. For a list of my publications, please refer to curriculum vitae and research statement. Here are my RePEc rankings among the top 10% economists in the areas of innovation and intellectual property rights.
