I am an Assistant Professor of Commerce at the McIntire School of Commerce at the University of Virginia and visiting scholar at the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia. Before joining UVA I was an Assistant Professor of Finance at the Krannert School of Management at Purdue University.

I investigate how social interactions, civic engagement, and politics connect household finance, real estate, and urban economics. My work has been published in the Journal of Urban Economics, Management Science, and the Review of Financial Studies, presented at the AFA Annual Meeting, AREUEA Annual Conference, MFA Annual Meeting, NBER Summer Institute, UEA Annual Meeting, and SFS Cavalcade, and appeared in Al Jazeera, The Globe and Mail, and The New York Times.

I teach financial management – a core class covering financial statement analysis, the time value of money, and the weighted average cost of capital – in the M.S. in Commerce Program at McIntire.
