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 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 macroprudential regulation on real estate markets. My work also touches on household finance aspects of property investment.
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.
