I am a Professor in the Economics Department at Boston College. Previously, I was a Senior Economic Advisor and Economist at the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia. My research interests cover labor mobility and fiscal/monetary policy, new endogenous productivity, sovereign default, and time series forecasting. I am also interested in the formulation, solution, and estimation of dynamic general equilibrium models.

New papers on exchange rate dynamics in the research section.

C++/CUDA codes to solve default models and a minimization routine in Fortran are available in the software section.
