My main areas of research are macroeconomics and applied macroeconomics. Specifically, I am interested in household consumption and saving, monetary policy and regional business cycles. In my job market paper I propose a new measure of household precautionary saving over the business cycle and evaluate how well augmented New Keynesian models can match this data as well as its implications for the transmission of monetary policy. Other research includes an empirical investigation of whether precautionary saving amplifies business cycles, and asymmetric effects of monetary policy.

My extensive teaching experience includes four courses for Georgetown University's Summer School program for which I assumed full responsibility, and I am currently in my second year as the McCourt School of Public Policy quantitative methods adivsor. In this role I regularly meet with master students to discuss their thesis research and application of econometric strategies.
