I am an Assistant Professor of Finance at Kellogg School of Management, Northwestern University. My research focuses on international finance and macroeconomics.
My main line of inquiry is about the role of government in the provision of currencies and safe assets. Using finance tools, I tackle questions like "Are there monetary, FX, and real consequences of government borrowing?" and "How much government borrowing is too much?"
A related topic is how the currencies and safe assets are intermediated in the international financial system, and how the monetary policy affects this intermediation.
In the broader field, I also work on the asset pricing theories of exchange rates, and the roles international trade, incomplete markets, and portfolio allocation play in such theories.
I received a Ph.D. from Stanford Graduate School of Business, and a B.Sc. from California Institute of Technology. View my [Curriculum Vitae] and [Department Profile]. Outside of academia, I enjoy playing cello, working out, and reading.
