Research Statement

I'm a macroeconomist who is broadly interested in issues related to human capital, inequality and growth. I study these primarily through the application of heterogeneous agent models. I am also an economic historian, and in this field my work focuses on the long-run determinants of growth, focusing on institutions, specifically on interactions between formal and informal institutions.
