I am an Associate Professor at Wilfrid Laurier University in Waterloo (Canada). I am a Research Associate at the Centre for Applied Macroeconomic Analysis (CAMA) (Australian National University, ANU) and a Research Fellow at the Centre for Monetary and Financial Economics (Carleton University). I am also an Associate Editor at the Journal of Economic Surveys. I have extensive work experience in academia, the public and the private sector. I am currently spending my sabbatical leave at CAMA at ANU.
All my research is in applied macroeconomics. I work in behavioural macro where my co-author Viet Nguyen (The University of Melbourne) and I are using household surveys to model the behaviour of heterogeneous consumers. I am also interested in monetary economics with particular focus on the effects of monetary policy shocks on asset prices and on consumer expectations.
I have a B.A. from McGill University, a M.Sc. from Université de Montréal and a Ph.D. from the Australian National University. All my degrees are in Economics.
My teaching experience is in intermediate and advanced macroeconomics, international finance, time series econometrics, financial econometrics and applied economic research.
