About Me

I am an Economist by academic and professional training, but my interests lie beyond this beautiful subject. In my free time, I like to run, play soccer andĀ basketball, and swim. Spending time with family is also very important to me so I try to visit my home country as often as I can.

Areas of Expertise

  • Financial Economics
  • Econometrics
  • Applied Macroeconomics

Research Interests

My research interests lie at the intersection of applied macro-finance models and time-series econometrics with a focus on the interplay between credit cycles, business cycles and asset prices. I am also interested in studying topics related to big data and machine learning and their role in understanding financial markets.
