I teach Money and Banking, Monetary Theory and Policy, as well as principle-level courses in macro and microeconomics. Prior to my current position, I was a post-doctoral research associate at Claremont Graduate University, a lecturer at California State University Long Beach, and a research economist at the Jakarta-based Centre for Strategic and International Studies. I received my PhD in economics and political science from Claremont Graduate University in 2013. My masters and undergraduate degrees are from Johns Hopkins University and the University of Indonesia.
I study the political economy of finance and banking. My current research investigates policies that contribute to and follow from financial crises, such as credit booms, international capital flows, financial regulations and elections. Outside of this, I have also worked on globalization and welfare spending.
