I am a Principal Economist at the Bank of Lithuania working at the Center for Excellence in Finance and Economic Research (CEFER). I am also a lecturer at the Faculty of Economics and Business Administration of Vilnius University. From August 2018 on, I will be with the School of Finance at the University of St. Gallen.
My main 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 political economy and statistics/econometrics.
Before moving to Lithuania in the fall of 2015 I was at the Center for Research in Experimental Economics and Political Decision making (CREED) at the University of Amsterdam and at the Tinbergen Institute where I worked on my PhD-thesis. My thesis advisor was Arthur Schram. The title of my PhD-thesis is Behavioral Economics and the Public Sector.
