I'm a Ph.D. candidate at the Department of Economics, University of Calgary. I expect to graduate in 2020 and will be joining the UBC Okanagan this September.

My fields of interest are Macroeconometrics, Monetary Economics, Financial Economics, and Econometrics. I also have research experience in Time Series Analysis and Index Number Theory. The tools I use to conduct empirical researches include Structural Vector Autoregressions (SVARs), Markov Regime-Switching (MRS) model, and other time series analysis models.

My job market paper investigates the instability of money demand and the associated welfare cost of inflation for the U.S. over the sample period 1967-2013 by using a Markov regime switch model. This paper is accepted by the Journal of Economic Dynamics and Control.
