Short Bio 

I am an economist currently working in the Western Hemisphere Department of the International Monetary Fund (IMF), where I focus on the intersection of  economics and climate change and support design of the Resilience and Sustainability Facility (RSF) programs. Previously, I worked in the IMF's Research Department, primarily on modelling economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic and natural disasters in Low-income developing countries. In addition to my roles at the IMF, I worked on macroeconomic surveillance and risk assessments at the European Stability Mechanism (ESM) where I was part of the Greek team.

Earlier in my career, I consulted the United Nations Capital Development Fund on financial inclusion, as well as statistical analysis using survey data. I also advised the fintech sector on issues related to the monetary economics and Central Bank Digital Currencies (CBDC). During my doctoral studies, I taught economics and econometrics to undergraduate students at the the City, University of London, both at the Economics Department and Bayes Business School.

I was born an ethnic Kumyk in Makhachkala, Dagestan Republic, the southernmost province of the Russian Federation. I hold a Ph.D. in Economics from City, University of London. Prior to that, I obtained an M.Sc. in International Business Economics from City, University of London and a Specialist diploma in Banking from the Financial University under the Government of the Russian Federation.
