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 corporate finance, real estate, and macro-finance.
I am particularly interested in the spatial dimensions of firm financing and investment. In another set of projects, I use administrative data to examine the incidence of taxes and financial regulation on real estate markets. My work also touches on household finance aspects of property investment.
My CV is here. My SSRN page.
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.

My paper, "Property Tax Sales, Private Capital, and Gentrification in the U.S." won the best paper award at the 2023 FMA Napa/Sonoma Conference.
Related to the ongoing Supreme Court case on home equity theft, I published a policy brief on property tax sale reform through George Washington University's Institute of Public Policy.
