I joined the Department of Economics and Finance at the Brunel University London in 2018. I obtained my degree of Doctor Scientiarum Politicarum in quantitative economics from Christian-Albrechts-University Kiel in Germany in 2008 and has a Master of Arts in Economics and Management Science from Humboldt-University Berlin. From 2008 to 2010 I was Max Weber fellow at the European University Institute in Florence. From 2011 to 2017 I was a Lecturer at the University of Reading.
My research interest comprises time series econometrics, empirical macroeconomics and finance. My studies have been published in journals such as Journal of Econometrics, Computational Statistics & Data Analysis, Journal of Time Series Econometrics, Journal of Money, Credit and Banking and Journal of International Money and Finance.
