I am an assistant professor at the University of St. Gallen and a faculty member of the Swiss Finance Institute. My main research interests are applications of behavioral economics/finance to financial markets, macroeconomics, and public finance.

Before joining the University of St. Gallen in 2018, I was a Principal Economist at the Bank of Lithuania (and researcher at Vilnius University). My PhD was carried out at the University of Amsterdam and the Tinbergen Institute.
