I am a full professor of economics in the Economics Department at the W.P. Carey School of Business at Arizona State University.
Before joining ASU, I worked as a research economist at the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco and at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York.
I have also been a part-time full professor at VU University Amsterdam, The Netherlands, and a research fellow at the Tinbergen Institute. In addition, I taught as an adjunct professor at UC Berkeley, the Graduate Center of the City University of New York, as well as at New York University.
I earned my PhD in economics at New York University and my MSc in econometrics at Erasmus University, Rotterdam, the Netherlands.
My broad field is applied macroeconomics, with particular emphasis on three topics: (i) Labor market frictions and unemployment dynamics, (ii) Economic growth and technology adoption, and (iii) Price setting and measurement of price indices and inflation.
