On the empirical front, he works on understanding statistical properties of data revisions, the yield curve and factor models. He has also worked on the effect of house prices on consumption during the Great Recession and how firms set their prices during periods of distress, both of which utilize large individual-level or firm-level datasets. His index for tracking business cycles, a new measure of GDP and term structure of inflation expectations are implemented by the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia.
