Hello and welcome to my website!

UPDATE: I am co-organizing the following conferences:

SITE session on ''Trade and Finance" on July 25-26 at Stanford with Juliane Begenau (Stanford GSB), Adrien Matray (Stanford GSB), and Linda Goldberg (Federal Reserve Bank of NY). The conference will feature papers on international economics, finance, and banking.

My research is on international macroeconomics and finance, banking, trade, and macroeconomics, often through the lens of economic history.
