I am currently an Assistant Professor at York University. Before joining York, I received my Ph.D. degree in economics from the University of Toronto in 2017 and then taught for two years at the National University of Singapore.
My research interests are in macroeconomics and economic development. My work focuses on understanding the observed cross-country productivity differences through the lens of resource misallocation, structural transformation, and technology adoption, using both general equilibrium models and micro data. I am also interested in incomplete market models and inequality.
