I am an Assistant Professor of Finance at Yale School of Management. I received my PhD from the Economics Department at Columbia University.
My research explores topics in real estate, corporate finance, and macro-finance.
I study topics related to the regulation of real estate markets and how firms choose to locate their operations in response to local tax and financing incentives. My work also touches on household finance and intermediation aspects of property investment, including delinquency and home equity credit lines.
I am currently hiring part-time research assistants for my projects. If you are a Yale undergraduate or graduate student, please see application instructions here. Yale College students interested in my project for the 2024 Scarf RA program see listing here.
