Welcome to my web page!

I am a teaching assistant and PhD candidate at Ghent University. I am interested in empirical macroeconomics, monetary policy, and the interaction between household debt, housing markets and economic activity.

I will be available for interviews at the EEA meeting in Naples (6-7 Dec) and at the ASSA meeting in Atlanta (4-6 Jan).
