About Me

For the fall semester, I will be joining the Lisbon Accounting & Business School as Assistant Professor of Economics. I am also affiliated as faculty at NOVA School of Business and Economics.

Previously I was a Postdoctoral Fellow at the NOVA Finance Center of NOVA School of Business and Economics. At the present, my research focuses mostly on Corporate Finance, both theoretical and empirical. Previously I have worked on Auctions, Contract Theory, and Matching.

During my career besides academia, I have worked as Economist and Consultant. During my consulting work at I.D. Consulting, I developed a deep interest in programming, especially in Java and Matlab/Octave, trying to simplify complex programs to intuitive and easy to set up graphical interfaces. It proved an excellent learning and teaching tool.

During my free time, I enjoy listening to the Rock and Blues legends, and (attempt) to emulate the big names of past decades with my electric and acoustic guitars.
