I am a trained economist, with a Ph.D. and M.A. in economics from the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA) in 1999 and 1996, respectively. Since 2003, I have been the Founding Principal and Senior Economist at Summit Consulting, LLC, a quantitative consultancy in Washington, D.C.
My research, teaching, and professional practice have focused on econometric modeling and statistical sampling. In addition to my academic research and teaching, I have developed, estimated, and verified econometric models on numerous occasions including for various federal agencies such as the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), and the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA). Many of these assignments concerned residential mortgage loans. For example, as a subject matter expert for HUD, I developed econometric models to evaluate Federal Housing Administration (FHA) Mutual Mortgage Insurance Fund (MMIF) forward and reverse mortgage loan portfolios for the 2013 Independent Actuarial Review. I have published articles in peer-reviewed and industry journals on topics of mathematics, economics, and real estate finance.
