I am an Associate Professor at Stony Brook University.
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 SBU, I worked as an Economic Advisor and Economist at the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia, and 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.
