I am currently an Assistant Professor at the Department of Economics at William & Mary, and a Faculty Affiliate at the Global Research Institute. I received my Ph.D. in Economics at the University of Michigan.
My research agenda focuses on international trade, economic geography, and urban economics in developing nations. I use trade and spatial structural models, applied microeconomics tools, and both administrative and historical data for projects on the following topics:
(i) trade, growth, and structural transformation of regions
(ii) trade and geography of commodities
(iii) cities in developing nations
(iv) and how domestic frictions shape both domestic and international trade.
