My research focuses on the impact of trade policy and multinational activity. In the past, I have analyzed the impact of lowering protectionist trade barriers on productivity, employment, wages, and profit levels. My research on multinationals examines how foreign investors behave in developing countries. In particular, I measure their impact on wages, productivity, and availability of credit for domestic competitors.

Recent working papers examine the productivity effects of privatization, the pollution haven hypothesis (the idea is that firms may move to countries with lax environmental standards), and the impact of foreign investors on the availability of credit in host country markets. I am currently doing research on the determinants of labor shares throughout the world.

For more information, please view my recent working papers and my Curriculum Vitae.
