I am an Assistant Professor of Finance at Yale School of Management. I received my PhD from the Economics Department at Columbia University in May 2020.

My research explores topics in corporate finance, real estate, and empirical macroeconomics. I am particularly interested in the spatial dimensions of firm financing and investment. In another set of projects, I examine the incidence of taxes and financial regulation on real estate markets using administrative data. My work also touches on household finance aspects of property investing.

My CV is here.          My SSRN page

I am currently hiring for research assistant work. If you are a Yale undergraduate or graduate student, please see application instructions here.

This draft extends the structural framework to optimal investor-specific taxes, offers a calibration based on price-rent ratio targeting, and incorporates heterogeneity in investor horizon.
