I am
 the Robert and Irene Bozzone Associate Professor of Economics at the University of Notre Dame, an NBER Faculty Research Fellow, a Research Affiliate at the Centre for Economic Policy Research (CEPR) and an Affiliate of the CESifo Research Network

I am an empirical macroeconomist and my primary research interests include the study of time-varying macroeconomic relationships with applications to the oil market and the transmission mechanism of both conventional and unconventional monetary policy using Bayesian methods. I have also worked extensively on forecasting the real price of oil. My recent research focuses on Bayesian inference in structural vector autoregressions.
