About

I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Economics at the University of Wisconsin - Whitewater. I got my Ph.D. and a Masters Degree (MA) in Economics from Georgetown University, a Masters Degree in Econometrics (MSc in Economics and Econometrics) from the University of Bristol, and a Bachelors Degree in Economics from the London School of Economics and Political Science. My primary field of research lies in monetary economics. I also have research interests that lie in the area of international macroeconomics, heterogenous agent models, threshold models and models that incorporate nonlinear dynamics. I have published the results of my research in peer reviewed journals like the Journal of International Money and Finance, Quarterly Review of Economics and Finance, Economics Letters, Journal of Economics and Finance, Applied Economics, and am currently working on several research projects. Broadly speaking, much of my current research involves examining the dynamics of macroeconomic variables and the underlying persistence of shocks hitting the macroeconomy. I am interested in understanding the transmission mechanism of monetary policy and its effects on the macroeconomy. In one project, I am currently trying to back out the inflation target that the Federal Reserve had been targeting historically. Other research is examining the time series properties and dynamics of both nominal and real exchange rates, as well as the impact of temporal aggregation in estimating the dynamics of aggregated data. At UW-Whitewater, I teach courses on Business Cycles, Mathematical Economics, Advanced International Economics and Business Conditions Analysis. I have also taught Principles of Macroeconomics, Money and Banking and Intermediate Macroeconomics. In addition to those classes, I have previously taught Macroeconomic Theory, Graduate Level Mathematical Economics, and Linear Algebra at Georgetown University.
