Welcome to my web page. I am an economist especially interested in macroeconomics, international economics and economic history. Topics of my research have included monetary policy rules for open economies, the behavior of the US-UK real exchange rate over different historical periods and the adjustment process for current account deficits.
I was born in Colorado and grew up in Michigan. After graduating from Carleton College in Northfield Minnesota, I spent a couple of years in New York working for a financial trade publication. I am a fan of the Detroit Tigers baseball team.
