Personal profile

Research interests


My research interests are Econometric Theory and Applied Macroeconomics. I am particularly working on change point modelling in time series and panel data and on model selection methods for estimation and forecasting in the presence of time-varying parameters and possibly large datasets.



Associate Professor (Tenured), Tilburg University (Mar. 2013-)

Assistant Professor (Tenure Track), Tilburg University (Sept. 2007- Febr. 2013)

Teaching Instructor / Research Assistant, NCSU (2003-2007)



Full CV available upon request.


For the Research Master program at Tilburg University, I also taught: Econometric Models in Economics (half on: asymptotic theory for static, dynamic panel data models, in linear and nonlinear models) and Empirical Research in Economics (half on: least-squares and instrumental variable methods via well-known examples and papers in macro- and microeconomics). Additionally, I taught instruction classes for the undergraduate courses Statistics and Quantitative Methods.
