Welcome to my website

I am an Economist at the research department of European Central Bank.  

My work includes topics from Macroeconomics and Macro-econometrics.
More specifically, my current research focuses on:
  •  The effects of expectations on business cycles
  •  The network analysis of financial markets
  •  The structural identification of shocks in SVAR models
  •  Fiscal policy 

"Philosophy is written in that great book which ever lies before our eyes — I mean the universe — but we cannot understand it if we do not first learn the language and grasp the symbols, in which it is written. This book is written in the mathematical language, and the symbols are triangles, circles and other geometrical figures, without whose help it is impossible to comprehend a single word of it; without which one wanders in vain through a dark labyrinth."
Galileo Galilei
