I'm an assistant professor whose research lies broadly in international macroeconomics. My current projects seek to theoretically and empirically understand the causes and effects of economic crises, particularly the roles of debt, asset bubbles, and capital flows. I also conduct research on the macroeconomic impacts of climate change. I teach graduate macroeconomics and undergraduate international economics/development.
My guiding mission is to contribute to the collective effort of building a beautiful world, where poverty, environmental destruction and wars are only found in history museums. (You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one...;) I am inspired by innovative changemakers like Carl Sagan, Muhammad Yunus, and Richard Branson. If you have similar interests, please drop me a line, and maybe we can work together!
Besides sciences, I also dabble in painting and drawing. You will find some of my art on this website.
