I am an Assistant Professor of Economics at Southern Methodist University. My recent research examines the determinants of global structural change patterns; the macroeconomic implications of demographic change; the regional and aggregate implications of U.S. tariff changes; global supply chains; and dynamic gains from trade. Methodologically, my work bridges the gap between the fields of macroeconomics and international trade by developing techniques to quantitatively incorporate dynamics into multicountry trade models. Prior to joining SMU, I worked as an economist at the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas where I regularly provided briefings to the Bank president on international economic developments.

Methods for Solving Dynamic, Multi-Country Trade Models
In recent papers I have been developing methods to compute transitional dynamics in multicountry trade models, where dynamics occur through capital accumulation and current account imbalances. Here is a link to slides that I have used to give graduate lectures on these methods.

The Midwest Macroeconomics Meetings is tentatively scheduled to take place at SMU at a future installment! Stay tuned for updates.
