This site shall inform the interested about my research in international economics.


With a PhD from Universitat Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona, Spain, I spent two years as a Post-Doc at the European University Institute in Florence, Italy. Since September 2007 I am employed by the Swiss National Bank, based in Zurich, Switzerland. Also, I am a research fellow at the CESifo Institute, Munich, Germany.
