Research Interests:

Macroeconomics and labor economics

My research resides primarily within the area of Macroeconomics, with an emphasis on topics related to Labor Economics. I am specialized in developing micro-founded heterogeneous agent general equilibrium models. I use the calibrated models to analyze a variety of policy-relevant issues. My current research focuses on the following two areas: (i) the impact of endogenous labor market frictions on business cycle outcomes and (ii) the interconnections between wealth and income inequality over the lifecycle.
