My area of expertise is international finance and macroeconomics. My research currently focuses on capital controls and macro-prudential regulation as policy instruments to reduce the risk of future financial crises. I investigate the global spillover effects of such policy measures as well as their implications for income inequality.
I joined Johns Hopkins University in 2013 and I am also a Faculty Research Fellow at the NBER. I received my PhD from Columbia University in 2007 after three years of work experience in the financial sector. In the past, I have also worked at the University of Maryland and I have been a visiting scholar at Harvard University, the World Bank, the IMF, the BIS and the Bundesbank.
