I am an economist at the International Monetary Fund (IMF) currently working on the intersection of macroeconomics and climate change. My work revolves around comprehending the macro-fiscal repercussions of climate and climate change, along with conducting comprehensive cost-benefit analyses for climate change adaptation. During my tenure at the IMF, I was also involved in developing toolkits aimed at easing macroeconomic analysis using dynamic general equilibrium models.

Beyond my current interest in climate economics, my research interests include the general evaluation of macroeconomic policies through advanced quantitative methodologies. My ongoing research includes modeling the time-varying nature of fiscal policy using Bayesian time series models and employing New Keynesian dynamic stochastic general equilibrium (DSGE) models to gain insights into historical policy implications.

I hold a Ph.D. in Economics degree from City, University of London.
