I am Assistant Professor in the Economics Department at Dartmouth College and a Faculty Research Fellow in the International Finance and Macroeconomics Program of the NBER. I have a PhD in Economics from UC Berkeley.
My main area of research is in International Macroeconomics. I have written extensively on Exchange Rate regimes, in particular the connections between exchange rate regimes and monetary policy, but also exchange rate regimes and trade and the nature of exchange rate regimes. More recently, I have worked on issues surrounding reserve accumulation (with Maury Obstfeld and Alan Taylor) and issues surrounding international financial currency exposure, financially weighted exchange rates, and valuation effects (with Philip Lane). I am also working on a book on exchange rate regimes with my frequent co-author, Michael Klein.
some of my publications include:
The Effect of Fixed Exchange Rates on Monetary Policy, Quarterly Journal of Economics vol. 119 no.1, February 2004, p. 301-352.
