My areas of interest are macroeconomics, international finance and inequality. My research currently investigates the effects of progress in automation and artificial intelligence for macroeconomic dynamics and inequality. I also study the effects of capital controls and macroprudential regulation as policy instruments to reduce the risk of financial crises and 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 IT and 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 numerous central banks.
