Research Summary

My research interests are: (1) Macroeconomic theory, with a focus on the links between growth, the business cycle and the distribution of income; (2) economic development, with a focus on structural heterogeneity; and (3) international economics, with a focus on large and persistent global imbalances. These are connected theoretically, in terms of the focus on macroeconomics, and methodologically, in the application of simulation models.
