I am a Ph.D candidate at the Econometrics Institute - Erasmus Universiteit Rotterdam & Tinbergen Institute (TI) in partnership with De Nederlandsche Bank (DNB). My supervisors are dr A. Pick, dr A. Naghi, and prof dr C. Zhou is my promotor.
You can find more about my background in the CV section.
My research interests are mostly linked to macroeconometrics: I am interested in studying and developing econometric models that are suitable for macroeconomic applications. In my Ph.D., I am investigating how to combine machine learning methods with economic theory and statistical inference. You find more about my work in the Research section.
