How important is firm entry and exit in aggregate productivity growth? We document that periods of rapid growth are associated with a higher contribution of entry and exit, and develop a theory explaining these facts in the paper "Firm Entry and Exit and Aggregate Growth".

I am a Senior Research Economist at the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas. My research focuses on international trade, sovereign debt crises, public health, firm dynamics and growth, and household finance (Research | Google Scholar). I hold a B.A. in Economics, a B.A. in political science, and a master's degree in International Studies from Yonsei University and a M.A. and a Ph.D. in Economics from the University of Minnesota.
