I am a Senior Economist at the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia.
I work at the intersection of macroeconomics and political economy, with particular emphasis on dynamic public finance and the effects of polarization on the economy..
Before joining the bank, I worked as an assistant professor at the Universities of Iowa and Texas-Austin. I was also a visiting scholar at the FR Banks of Richmond and Minneapolis, and the University of Pennsylvania. I received my PhD in Economics from the University of Rochester in 2004.
