I am an Assistant Professor of Economics and the Jones Jr. Faculty Fellow in Applied Economics at Middlebury College in Vermont. I received my Ph.D. in Economics from the University of California, San Diego in 2017 and B.A. in Economics from Cornell University. I was previously a dissertation fellow at the Federal Reserve Board of Governors in Washington DC and at the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City.
My research focuses on the macroeconomic and policy implications of globalization. For example, I study whether traditional monetary policy in the U.S. becomes less effective when foreign governments accumulate large amounts of Treasury debt. I also study why employment rates of non-college men in the U.S. have been declining since the 1970s.
