I am an assistant professor at the School of Finance at the University of St. Gallen. I am also the executive director of the PhD Program in Finance.

My main research interests are applications of behavioral finance/economics to financial markets, macroeconomics, and public finance. In addition, I am interested in econometrics and machine learning.

Before joining the University of St. Gallen in August 2018, I was Principal Economist at the Bank of Lithuania, working in the Center for Excellence in Finance and Economic Research CEFER (and researcher at the Faculty of Economics and Business Administration of Vilnius University). My PhD was carried out at the University of Amsterdam and the Tinbergen Institute.
