About Me

I was born in Yerevan, Armenia. I moved to the United States in 2001, where I completed my B.A. in Economics and Mathematics at the University of California - San Diego and my Ph.D. in Economics at the University of California - Berkeley. I moved to Barcelona, Spain in September 2014 where I began my position as a Researcher at Centre de Recerca en Economia Internacional (CREi). I am also an Adjunct Professor in the Economics Department at the Universitat Pompeu Fabra and an Affiliated Professor at the Barcelona Graduate School of Economics.  

My research interests are in the fields of Macroeconomic Theory, Applied Theory and Financial Economics. I also enjoy playing football (soccer) with my colleagues and friends, and in my spare time I play and follow chess.
