About Me

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.
