I am a PhD student in Finance at the University of Geneva and the Swiss Finance Institute. My research is focused on the theory and computation of general equilibrium models with heterogeneity and its application to macro-financial models. In particular, I am interested in the implications for wealth inequality, stock market participation, asset prices and firm financing. In March 2017, I received the James B. Ramsey Prize for the best doctoral paper in econometrics and in August 2015, I was awarded the Macro Financial Modeling Fellowship for my work. Furthermore, I frequently present at international conferences, e.g. meetings of the Econometric Society, the NBER Summer Institute or the CEF. 

I am on the job market 2017/2018. I will be available for interviews at the ASSA Annual Meeting in Philadelphia, the RES PhD Meetings in London and the Meeting of the Spanish Economic Association in Barcelona. 


  • Upcoming Seminars and Conference I will present at the Dynare Conference in Tokyo from October 28-29, 2017. Furthermore, I will present at the Computational Economics Seminar at the University of Zurich on November 8, 2017, and I will give a seminar at the Bank of Spain on November 15, 2017.
