Welcome to my economic research website!

I am Head of Forecasting at the Bank of Finland's  Monetary Policy and Research Department. 

Our new forecast of the Finnish economy is here!

My research covers topics in optimal monetary policy, fiscal policy, labour market dynamics and macro-financial linkages. I teach macroeconomics at Finnish Doctoral Program in Economics.

I have graduated from the European University Institute in 1999. 
Prior to current responsibilities at the Bank of Finland, I have worked as Research Advisor at the Bank of Finland's Research Unit and as an Economist at the Bank of Finland Forecasting Division.  Before joining the Bank of Finland, I was  Economist at the                        Government Institute for Economic Research (VATT). 

I have held visiting positions in the Cass Business School in London in  2001, the Bank of Finland in 1999 and 2003 and in the Directorate General  Research at the European Central Bank in autumn 2007 and 2009–2010.  During 2011 I was Senior Economic Advisor at the European Financial  Stability Facility (EFSF).
