Thank you for visiting my page! I am an associate professor of economics at the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Policy, Syracuse University. In my research, I explore the factors that drive economic growth and development.  Using various tools of economic analysis (quantitative macro theories, game-theoretic political economy models, and econometric methods), I study questions regarding theories of economic development and policy. I teach the core Ph.D. macro course as well as undergraduate courses on macro and growth.
