I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Economics at Simon Fraser University in Vancouver, Canada. Before coming to SFU, I studied at Jacobs University (Bremen, Germany) and the London School of Economics, and I obtained my PhD from the University of California at Davis.
My research interests include macroeconomics, international economics, and economic theory. Most of my work is on the intersection of monetary theory and finance. I am generally interested in market frictions and in the economic consequences of such frictions.
