I am an assistant professor at the School of Finance at the University of St. Gallen. I am also affiliated as research fellow with the Faculty of Economics and Business Administration at Vilnius University.
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 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). 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.
