My interests are:
  • Applied time series econometrics
    • Markov-switching models
    • Time-varying coefficient models
    • Trend-cycle decompositions
  • DSGE modelling and estimation
    • Monetary-fiscal policy interactions
    • Markov-switching DSGE models

    • Limited-dependent variable models

I am originally from Ecuador and worked at the Department of Economics of the Escuela Superior Politécnica del Litoral (ESPOL) in Guayaquil where I taught macroeconomics and econometrics at the undergraduate level for 6 years.  I currently teach econometrics at the graduate school of the School of Social Sciences and Humanities at ESPOL.

I obtained my Bachelor's degree from ESPOL, my Master's degree from the Department of Economics of Universidad de Chile, and my Doctoral degree from Indiana University.
