Research Interests: International Macroeconomics; Monetary Policy

Education: PhD, École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales, Paris

I joined the Johns Hopkins Department of Economics in 2008, after ten years in various positions at the Research Department of the International Monetary Fund. My research spans an array of applied and theoretical topics in international and domestic macroeconomics: capital flows, exchange rate regimes and currency crises, sovereign debt and defaults, international liquidity, and monetary policy. Outside of Hopkins, I am also a research associate at National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER, Cambridge MA), a research fellow at the Center for Economic Policy Research (CEPR, London), and a nonresident senior fellow at the Peterson Institute for International Economics (Washington, D.C.).
