I'm an associate professor at Indiana University. 

Before that, I worked as an economist in the research department of the Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond. I have served as a visiting scholar in the IMF on various occasions. 

My work concentrates on limited liability problems (mainly on sovereign defaults) and on asset pricing.
