Sound, timely and well-designed economic policy-making can benefit a lot from economic research.
My main research areas are macroeconomics, public economics and labor and demographic economics, such as fiscal policies, taxation, public expenditures and pensions, debt, unemployment, retirement and informal labor markets. In addition, I have always been interested in international economics: trade and competitiveness. Several of my projects have been borderline cases between different fields in economics or between economics and other social sciences.
Regarding the methodologies, I primarily use quantitative macroeconomic modeling techniques (D(S)GE models, New Keynesian models, overlapping generations models). Nonetheless, I am also familiar with (macro)econometrics ((S)VAR, time series and panel econometrics).
