I am an Assistant Professor in the Vancouver School of Economics at the University of British Columbia.
My research interest is in international macroeconomics, financial economics and information economics with a particular focus on the role of coordination failures and financial frictions.
I obtained my PhD in 2014 from New York University and my undergraduate degree in economics from the London School of Economics and Political Science.
