Personal Economic Research Page


I am a Principal Economist at the Financial Stability Department at the Bank of Canada. I hold a Ph.D. in Economics from Boston College (2012) and a B.A. in Economics magna cum laude from Harvard University (2002).  Prior to joining the Bank of Canada, I worked at the Boston Fed and taught Economics of Risk and Insurance at Harvard. 

I am interested in all issues related to financial stability, risk and uncertainty, and in particular:
  • Systemic risk
  • Banking regulation and reform
  • Financial reform in derivatives and OTC markets
  • Collateral and moral hazard in financial markets 
  • The insurability of low-probability, high-impact risks
  • Catastrophe insurance and risk diversification
  • Mechanism design
