Assistant Professor of Finance, Yale School of Management


Real estate finance, housing policy, corporate tax incentives, commercial real estate, mortgage markets.


My research spans real estate, corporate finance, urban economics, and household finance. I examine how tax policy and financial regulation influence investor behavior in real estate markets. Through my work on the links between property tax delinquency and gentrification, I have advised legal teams working on ongoing cases related to the constitutionality of local property tax foreclosure procedures. In other papers, I examine how the location decision of firms, and where they choose to invest in response to local tax incentives, matters for local economic development and regional inequality.
