Profile

I am an applied macroeconomist with interest in economic growth, financial development, and income inequality. Some of my past research focused on understanding cross-country productivity differences, evaluating the potential benefits of stock market bubbles, and investigating the link between financial development and wage inequality. My current research deals with non-factor-neutral technology differences across countries, skill and capital bias of technological change and consumption spending under credit constraints. For a non-technical description of one of my recent papers see http://www.voxeu.org/article/democracy-diversification-and-growth-reversals.
