I'm fascinated with how economics uses reasons (theory) and evidence (data) to know, persuade, evaluate, and act. My research is in financial economics, macroeconomics, and applied econometrics. I study how how individuals make decisions in complex, changing, and uncertain environments, and how this imperfect information shapes how firms behave. My published papers and works in progress can be found on my professional website.
