My research agenda is organized around three areas: macroeconomics, Bayesian statistics, and evolutionary dynamics. One line of my recent research develops frequency-domain approaches to solving dynamic incomplete information models with applications to monetary and fiscal policy. Another line develops Markov chain Monte Carlo methods for estimating high-dimensional dynamic stochastic general equilibrium models. I also conduct research on the evolution of cooperative and altruistic human behavior.

Currently, I teach ECON 3120 Intermediate Macroeconomics, ECON 4310 International Macroeconomics, and ECON 6930 Applied Bayesian Statistics at Saint Louis University.
