I am an Assistant Professor of Economics at Trinity College Dublin.
My research is in quantitative macroeconomics, bringing together data and models, with applications in:
entrepreneurship, international economics, life cycle risk taking, inequality, and asset prices.
Much of my current work focuses on the role that population aging plays economies. To do so I identify the
various macroeconomic channels through which aging populations can affect macroeconomic trends, and quantify the
potential size of these impacts not only today, but for many years to come.
Before moving to Dublin, I studied at the University of California, Davis. I'm originally from the
Chicago area where I
did my undergarduate studies at DePaul University.
