I am an applied, empirical economist. My former research has mostly dealt with micro-level implications of banks and companies finances in the context of financial and economic crisis. The recent research agenda relates to companies investment patterns, including R&D investments, and their implications to productivity. An on-going research project is concerned about the issues of knowledge economy, human capital, knowledge and technology adoption in fostering productivity and sustainable economic growth in comparative context of European regions (see Research).
Courses: Econometrics for PhD students (TES9130, autumn); Master Seminar (TEX1140, autumn semester), Multivariate Statistics for MA students (TES2403, spring semester), Statistical Analysis (TES8140, autumn 2011-2014).
I am supervising master and PhD theses on various topics preferring subjects related to micro-econometric analysis.
Have been involved in academic, but also applied projects concerning economic policy, financal crises but also prediction and evaluation of various micro-level risks and propensities.
