What is the optimal policy response to the COVID-19 health and economic crises?  In "The Distributional Effects of COVID-19 and Optimal Mitigation Policies," I develop a quantitative heterogeneous-agent, overlapping-generations, economic-epidemiological model to show that stay-at-home subsidies are preferred to stay-at-home orders and that it is possible to improve public health and economic outcomes simultaneously. 

I am a Principal Research Economist at the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas. My research focuses on international economics and macroeconomics (Research | Google Scholar). I hold a B.A. in Economics and a B.A. in Political Science/International Relations from Yonsei University and a M.A. and a Ph.D. in Economics from the University of Minnesota.
