I am an Assistant Professor of Economics at Southern Methodist University. My interests lie at the intersection of international trade and macroeconomic development. 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.
