Welcome to my homepage

I am a professor of empirical macroeconomics at the University of Salzburg, focusing on Bayesian time series econometrics and its applications in finance and macroeconomics. Prior to joining the University of Salzburg, I held an assistant professor position at the WU Vienna and was working as an economist in the foreign research division (AUSA) of the Oesterreichische Nationalbank (OeNB). Moreover, I am deputy director of the Salzburg Centre of European Union Studies (SCEUS), a scientific consultant to the OeNB and the European Commission as well as Associate Editor of Empirical Economics and International Economics.

My research has been published in international top journals such as the Journal of Business and Economic Statistics, the Journal of Econometrics, the Journal of Applied Econometrics, the European Economic Review, the Journal of Economic Dynamics and Control, and the Journal of the Royal Statistical Society: Series A, among others.
