My research interests lie in the fields of finance, macroeconomics, and public economics, where I primarily take a behavioral perspective. In addition to these, I am interested in statistics and political science.
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.
