Becoming a Golden Hawk means more than just cheering on our (really good) varsity teams – it means being a student who cares about your community, who works hard in the classroom, and who takes advantage of all the learning opportunities that can happen outside the classroom, too.
I received my PhD in Economics from Queen’s University in 2019 and my MA in Economics from Queen's University in 2013. I have six years of combined work experience at the Bank of Canada and the International Monetary Fund where I developed and applied global macroeconomic DSGE models for policy analysis and research.
Research Interests / Ongoing Projects
My primary research interests are in the fields of macroeconomics as well as international economics and finance. Much of my current work examines the determinants of income and wealth inequality. I also have ongoing research and have published in the areas of fiscal and monetary policy, international migration and remittances, and primary commodities.
Student Opportunities / Supervising
I am available to supervise students on topics in global commodity markets, fiscal and monetary policy, international remittances and migration, and wealth inequality. Aside from forecasting projects, students should be prepared to utilize structurally identified econometric models, dynamic stochastic general equilibrium models, or heterogeneous agent models.
