I am a Senior Research Economist with the Globalization and Monetary Policy Institute at the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas. My research focuses on the role of international trade in explaining macro aspects of economic development and aggregate prices, both across countries and over time.

    Research Statement

Check out the video below. Over 150 years of structural change in under 1 minute! It shows how GDP per capita and the composition of employment evolved from 1850-2008 for the U.S., Japan, the Asian Tigers (Hong Kong, Singapore, South Korea, and Taiwan), and China. Each economy is divided into three main sectors: agriculture, industry, and services. Each sector's share in employment is plotted against GDP per capita, while GDP per capita is plotted against time.
