"Financial Inclusion and Stability in Africas Middle-Income Countries" (with Yibin Mu). Africa on
the Move: Unlocking the Potential of Small Middle-Income States, Eds. Lamin Leigh and Ali Mansoor.
Washington, DC: International Monetary Fund, 2016. 107-130.
Using IMF Financial and World Bank Enterprise Survey data, we employ a binary choice model
to test whether the Z-score measure of financial stability is causally affected by various financial
inclusion indicators.

Works In Progress
US Firm Exports, Intellectual Property Rights and Welfare (with William F. Lincoln), Revise and
Resubmit, Journal of International Economics
Using US Census and Patent (PTO) data, we use difference-in-differences methodology to test
whether patent reforms increase the export likelihood of a patenting firm.
Trade Contracts and the Exchange-Rate Pass-Through Puzzle, draft available
Using foreign exchange and forward markets data, I employ Maximum Likelihood Estimation,
Nonlinear Regression and Vector Error-Correction Modeling in testing whether trade contracts
affect pass-through of exchange rates into import prices.
Trade Misinvoicing as a Means to Circumvent Capital Controls (with Hiro Ito), draft available
Utilizing China, Hong Kong, Japan, European Union and US Panel Customs Data, we use Fixed
Effects, Random Effects, Panel-corrected standard errors (with and without weights) models to test
whether trade misinvoicing is systematically caused by capital controls.

International Price Differentials: An Analysis of the Mens Athletic Shoe Market
