I am a postdoctoral scholar in the Laboratory for Aggregate Economics and Finance at UCSB, and a visiting instructor at Carnegie Mellon University's Tepper School of Business. My research focusses on household finance, specifically how behavioral phenomena determine agent-level consumption and savings decisions as well as macroeconomic outcomes. I am interested in topics pertaining to the structural evolution of the economy: how have changing household consumption and time-use decisions contributed to the rise in the services sector and to what degree have these decisions contributed to the re-allocation of capital and labor inputs across sectors? I am also interested in the degree to which measuring home production affects our inferences with respect to welfare inequality. Do households of lower market productivities (i.e. wages) have comparative advantages when it comes to time-intensive in-home labor? How does variation in the relative prices of market inputs impact both the within-household allocation of time and consumption, but also the distribution of welfare across households? My work has been funded by the NSF, the PNC Center for Financial Services at Carnegie Mellon University, and LAEF at UCSB.
