Welcome! I am a macroeconomist in the economics department at the University of Missouri and a visiting scholar at the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis. I received my PhD in economics from the University of Pennsylvania.

I primarily study the impact that household debt and illiquidity have on the macroeconomy, particularly through the behavior of the housing, credit, and higher education markets. My work contributes to the growing literature that emphasizes how heterogeneity, frictions, and market structure impact the entire economy.
