Associate Professor of Economics
I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Economics, where I teach Economics 1011B and an advanced Ph.D course. My research covers topics in macroeconomics, finance, and labor markets. I graduated from Harvard in 2005 with a degree in Social Studies and received my Ph.D at UC Berkeley. I have also lived in Washington, D.C., first as a research assistant at the Brookings Institution and later as an economist in the Obama Administration. My wife Abby is also a Harvard '05 Social Studies graduate. She did Teach For America after college, then went to law school and now works in the Attorney General's office. We have two children, Liam (age 3) and Asher (age 1).
