I am Professor of Economics and Finance at the University of California, Davis, with appointments in the Department of Economics and the Graduate School of Management. I am also a research associate of the National Bureau of Economic Research in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and a research fellow of the Center for Economic Policy Research in London. I currently serve as a Co-Editor at the Journal of International Economics.
My research interests span international trade, finance, macroeconomics, and economic history. I read mathematics at King’s College, Cambridge, and graduated with a Ph.D. in economics from Harvard University.
My publications include numerous articles in a range of economics journals including the American Economic Review, Econometrica, the Quarterly Journal of Economics, the Journal of International Economics, and the Journal of Economic History; edited volumes and the books Global Capital Markets: Integration, Crisis and Growth published by Cambridge University Press (with Maurice Obstfeld), and Straining at the Anchor: The Argentine Currency Board and the Search for Macroeconomic Stability, 1880–1935 published by The University of Chicago Press (with Gerardo della Paolera); and essays on policy and commentary in the Financial Times, Foreign Affairs, Reuters, ft.com and vox.eu, among other publications.
In 2004 I was awarded a John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Fellowship. In 2009–10 I was named a Houblon-Norman/George Fellow at the Bank of England. I have been a visitor/consultant/speaker at many public sector organizations including the IMF, World Bank, IDB, ECB, BIS, various Federal Reserve Banks, and the central banks of France, Netherlands, Italy, Austria, Croatia, and Argentina. I have also served as a Senior Advisor at Morgan Stanley and have been a consultant to various asset managers.
