Bio and CV

I received my PhD in Business Economics from Harvard University in 2020 and will join Georgetown University as an Assistant Professor in the Walsh School of Foreign Service. I work on topics in International Trade, Macroeconomics, and Industrial Organization.

My current research uses US census microdata to identify the role of knowledge inputs (e.g. R&D, management, and IT) in production. I’m particularly interested in the implications of these microeconomic properties for the aggregate propagation of shocks (e.g. tariffs) across industries, and as drivers of structural transformation (reallocation from manufacturing to services) in the economy. 

I received my bachelor's degree from Princeton University in 2013, where I majored in Economics.

My interest in all things international is inspired by my experiences growing up in Germany, Finland, Singapore, and Hong Kong.
