I am an Economics PhD candidate in the Manderson Graduate School of Business at the University of Alabama. My fields of interest are macroeconomics, finance, and applied time-series econometrics.
I have studied at Yale College, the Institut Bourguiba des Langues Vivante, and Phillips Exeter Academy. Before coming to grad school I worked as a geometry teacher for the Birmingham City Schools system. This past summer I worked as an economist intern at Regions Financial Corp.
In my job market paper, A Dynamic Nelson-Siegel Yield Curve Model with Markov Switching, I propose a model that accurately estimates interest rates and gives insight for the macro-variables that drive regime changes in the term structure.
