Financial Economist

Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco

Welcome to my website! I’m a Research Advisor in the Economic Research Department of the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco. My research focuses on the interactions of financial markets with the macroeconomy and monetary policy. I am particularly interested in trying to understand the effects of monetary policy actions on financial markets, including the unconventional policies that central banks started implementing during the Global Financial Crisis of 2008, like asset purchases and forward guidance. My work has been published in leading economics journals including the American Economic Review, the Review of Financial Studies, and the Journal of Business and Economic Statistics.

I obtained my Ph.D. in Economics at the University of California, San Diego, where Jim Hamilton was my doctoral adviser, and my B.A. in Economics and M.A. in Quantitative Economics and Finance from the University of St. Gallen, Switzerland.
