I am a Lecturer in Economics at the University of York. Before coming to York, I was a Research Fellow at Nuffield College, University of Oxford between 2009 and 2014. 

I finished my PhD in economics at the University of St Andrews in 2007. I am also a graduate of Comenius University Bratislava, Slovakia (2002) and University of York (2003). 

Between 2012 and 2015, I served a three-year term as one of the founding members of Slovakia's Council for Budget Responsibility - an independent fiscal watchdog. In this role, I started coordinating the activities of the Network of EU Independent Fiscal Institutions, a platform for cooperation among EU fiscal watchdogs I still engage with.

Previously, I worked as a research assistant and consultant in the Slovak branch of ING Bank, and in the Ministry of Labour, Social Affairs and Family of the Slovak Republic, where I advised the State Secretary and led a small policy research unit. I also did  some consultation work for the World Bank, UNDP and served as an adviser to Slovak finance ministers between 2007 and 2012. Between 2008 and 2010, I was a member of the Economic and Financial Committee of the European Union and the Eurogroup Working Group on behalf of Slovakia. I also participated in the working group preparing the reform of economic governance in Europe for the task force led by the President of the European Council in 2010.
