Welcome to my webpage!

I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Economics at Northwestern University, a Faculty Research Fellow at the National Bureau of Economic Research, and a Research Affiliate at the Centre for Economic Policy Research.

My research interests are in macroeconomics and macro-finance, with a focus on climate change and inequality.  My work seeks to advance two core research agendas. The first concerns the role of energy and climate change for financial and macroeconomic fluctuations. The second is to understand how economic inequality and household finance matter for the macroeconomy and macroeconomic policy. My research highlights that climate change and inequality also have important implications for the business cycle, above and beyond the significant long-run effects.
