My research focuses on international macroeconomics and economic growth. In the first instance, I study the determination of international price dispersion focusing on the importance of real factors such as productivity and immigration. In the second instance, I study the sources of economic welfare in frontier and non-frontier economies emphasizing the importance of R&D and international technology diffusion. The latter is key to understanding cross-country health outcomes as a distinct component of welfare other than income.
