I'm an economist 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 capital flows, debt, and asset bubbles. I teach graduate macro and undergrad international econ + international development.
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.) If you have similar interests, please drop me a line, and maybe we can work together!
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.
