He leads the center’s efforts to estimate the macroeconomic effects of tax policy and incorporate those effects into analyses of tax proposals (a process often referred to as dynamic analysis). Before joining Urban, he was closely involved in dynamic analysis at the Congressional Budget Office (CBO), including macroeconomic analysis of presidential budgetary proposals, the long-term outlook for the federal budget, and the effects of stimulus policies. From 2013 to 2016, he was unit chief of the fiscal policy studies unit of the macroeconomic analysis division of the CBO. He received an AB in economics from Stanford University and a PhD in economics from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
