Welcome to my website! I am a PhD candidate in Economics and Data Science at the University of Montreal.

My research interests include Econometrics, Big Data, Machine Learning/Text as Data (NLP), and Climate Finance. I am also interested in applying Artificial Intelligence methods to answer macro-finance and causal inference questions.

I hold an MSc. in Statistics and Economics, and have worked as an economist at the IMF and World Bank, as well as an AI Scientist in the IT Industry.

I will be on the job market in the 2023-2024 academic year, and I will be available for interviews at the ASSA and at the EJME virtual meetings.

Please see my CV for more details.
