Research

My research interests are in the areas of International economics (with an emphasis on 
empirical trade), Macroeconomic growth and development, and applied econometrics. My 
research agenda can be largely categorized into three areas of inquiry: Trade costs & margins 
of trade; Macroeconomic variables & trade; and heterogeneous impact of trade costs on trade. (Click here to view my research statement)
