My research lies broadly in international macroeconomics. My current projects seek to understand, both theoretically and empirically, the causes and effects of (macroeconomic, political and environmental) crises. I also teach graduate macro and undergrad international econ.
My mission is to do my best to contribute to the collective effort of building a beautiful world, where crises, poverty, and wars are only found in history museums, where everyone lives in harmony with nature, and where humanity unleashes our full collective potentials. (You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one.)
I am inspired by innovative revolutionaries like Carl Sagan, Muhammad Yunus, and Richard Branson. I am also inspired by the path-breaking research of Daron Acemoglu, Esther Duflo and Joe Stiglitz. I hope to co-author with them one day. :)
Besides sciences, I also dabble in painting and drawing. You will find some of my art on this website.
