I am an associate professor of economics at Pennsylvania State University. My research focuses on international economics, models of firm heterogeneity, and national income accounting (Google Scholar // IDEAS). I hold a B.S. in Economics from Bowling Green State University and a Ph.D. in Economics from the University of Minnesota.

I am also a special sworn employee of the Bureau of Economic Analysis, where I study the ways that multinational firms produce and sell goods and services around the world.

I am an associate editor of Economics Letters, and I have been an associate editor of The Journal of International Economics and The B.E. Journal of Macroeconomics.  I organize the Atlanta International Workshop with Federico Mandelman and Vivian Yue (2016 // 2015 // 2014 // 2013 // 2012). Veronica Rappoport and I are the co-chairs of the program committee for the 2017 Society of Economic Dynamics annual meeting.
