About Me

I am a Professor of Economics at the University of Wisconsin - Whitewater. You may find a pdf of most recent cv here.

My research interests lie in the areas of macroeconomics, monetary economics, open economy macroeconomics, machine learning applications to macroeconomics, threshold models and models that incorporate nonlinear dynamics. I have published the results of my research in peer reviewed journals like the Journal of International economics, Journal of International Money and Finance, Quarterly Review of Economics and Finance, Economics Letters, Journal of Economics and Finance, Applied Economics, and am currently working on several research projects.

Broadly speaking, much of my current research involves examining the dynamics of macroeconomic variables and the underlying persistence of shocks hitting the macroeconomy. I am interested in understanding the transmission mechanism of monetary policy and its effects on the macroeconomy. My other research interests involve examining the time series properties and dynamics of both nominal and real exchange rates, as well as other macroeconomic variables.
