Welcome! I am an applied macroeconomist with a passion for public, labor and demographic economics. My goal is to merge quantitative methods with intuitions to make a substantial impact on policy decision making. I have worked in and on numerous countries across the globe for the sake of resolving real-world challenges. I also have an eye for development and competitiveness, and a history of working with experts in other fields (law, political science).
I hold an MPhil in Economic Research degree from the University of Cambridge and a PhD in Economics from the European University Institute. Since 2016, I have been working for the International Monetary Fund. Additionally, I have been invited to serve as an external advisor to several institutions, including the European Central Bank, the Independent Authority for Fiscal Responsibility of Spain and the Lithuanian Fiscal Institution.
A few selected highlights:
Based on our work, the IMF's 2018 Review of Program Design and Conditionality noted that the selection of structural conditions should be informed by structural gaps identified in surveillance and stressed the need for more realistic implementation timetables and estimates of reform payoffs.
Our STRESS model of labor and product market reforms has been used in several Article IV consultations by Fund staff.
The European Central Bank relied on our OGRE model in their March 2018 Economic Bulletin when stating that "although many euro area countries implemented pension reforms following the sovereign debt crisis, further reforms appear to be necessary in order to ensure fiscal sustainability in the long run."
