About me

I am a Ph.D. student in Economics at Glasgow University. Throughout this period I have been a PhD trainee and Research Analyst at the European Central Bank (ECB) .

My research interest mainly focusses on applying Natural Language Processing techniques to study the narratives embedded in the news and social media. The core of my research agenda consists in extracting valuable information from text (using for example topic modelling, word embeddings or sentiment analysis) and study how this information propagates over time and in which ways in might connect to the real economy.

I like sports such as surfing, sailing, fencing, climbing and skiing. I enjoy travelling and history.

Research interests:

  • Empirical Macroeconomics
  • Natural Language Processing
  • Machine Learning
  • API data
  • Complex dynamical systems
