He is an assistant professor of economics at Penn State University and is currently visiting the International Economics Section at Princeton University during 2013-2014.

His research interests are in Macroeconomics and International Economics. A common theme of his research is the analysis of how lack of commitment and   enforcement frictions shape outcomes in dynamic economies and the implications that the   existence of these frictions have for policy. Currently he is working on sovereign default, the interaction between trade reform and credit market conditions, and on how credibility affects the   gains for a country to join a monetary union.
