I began researching cryptocurrencies/cryptoassets/cryptos (such as Bitcoin) in 2014. My research focuses on their use and implication as a globally traded alternative to national currencies or assets. This incorporates topics such as exchange rates, capital controls, and the global financial and monetary system. I have been interviewed by various media outlets, including NPR, and have given both academic and non-academic talks. I have received multiple teaching awards, and have taught specialized courses in international trade and international macroeconomics, in addition to introductory (non-calculus based) microeconomics and macroeconomics and intermediate (calculus-based) macroeconomics. Several of my undergraduate students have presented the results of their supervised research at undergraduate conferences.
