I am an Economist at the Research Department of Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis. I received my Ph.D. from the University of Rochester in 2008. Since then, I have published papers in the American Economic Review, Econometrica, the Journal of Monetary Economics, the Journal of Economic Theory, the International Economic Review, the Journal of International Economics and the Review of Financial Studies, among others. My CV is available here.

Since July 2018, I am Associate Editor of the Journal of Economic Dynamics and Control and Assistant Vice President at the St. Louis Fed. Since 2021, I am also the co-editor of the Review of the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis.

I taught Money and Banking between 2013 and 2017 at t Washington University in St. Louis. Since 2018, I am teaching Quantitative Macro Theory at the graduate level.

Most of my research has been focused on financial development and the effect on heterogeneous firms, productivity and growth, households debt and default (credit cards, mortgages, etc), and sovereign debt in emerging economies.
