Welcome to my website!

I am an Assistant Professor of Economics and the Jones Jr. Faculty Fellow in Applied Economics at Middlebury College in Vermont. My research focuses on the macroeconomic and policy implications of globalization. For example, I study whether traditional monetary policy in the U.S. becomes less effective when foreign governments accumulate large amounts of Treasury debt. I also study why employment rates of non-college men in the U.S. have been declining since the 1970s.
