About me

Welcome to my personal website!


I am an Economist in the Economics and Research department (International Economy group) of the National Bank of Belgium.

I also remain affiliated with the Institute of Development Policy (IOB) of the University of Antwerp, where I obtained my PhD in Applied Economics.

A detailed CV can be found under the 'Curriculum Vitae' tab.

My main fields of research are international and development economics. I am particularly interested in issues related to sovereign debt, emerging markets and the global financial safety net (including IMF lending) - but I am open to explore other topics too. My work has featured in the Journal of International Money and Finance, The World Economy, Economic Development and Cultural Change, Journal of African Economies, Emerging Markets Finance and Trade, Global Environmental Change, and the Review of Development Finance, among other journals. For a full list of my publications, look under the 'Research' tab.
