Research interests

  • Macroeconomics
  • Technological progress

Given that technology is one of the major driving forces of the economy, I believe there is still a long way to complete understanding of how particular technological progress influences economic growth and cycles.


I am currently writing a dissertation on general purpose technologies (the technologies that reshape the whole economy rather than some particular sectors) and their affect on the economy.


I received the Warren Ober Award for Outstanding Teaching by Graduate Students in the Faculty of Arts in 2011.
