In my research I focus on the macroeconomic aspects of economic development (macro-development). I build macro models with empirically motivated micro-economic considerations, such as heterogeneity across sectors and individuals, and market frictions. The goal is to evaluate the quantitative performance of different theories. Examples of topics I study include the role of financial markets in the process of development, the forces driving the changes in the structure of production over time, the diffusion of technologies, economic policies and institutions across countries.
