I am a D.Phil. (Ph.D.) candidate at the Department of Economics of the University of Oxford and a James Martin Fellow at the Program on Economic Modeling, Institute for New Economic Thinking at the Oxford Martin School. My main research interests are in time-series econometrics and empirical macroeconomics. I am writing my thesis on forecasting and nowcasting macroeconomic variables in the presence of structural breaks under the supervision of Professor Sir David F. Hendry. My current project involves evaluating performance of automatic model selection algorithms (such as Autometrics) for nowcasting quarterly GDP growth and inflation. I am also a Stipendiary Lecturer at St Hilda's College and Magdalen College, where I teach Quantitative Economics and Econometrics to undergraduate students in PPE and Economics & Management.

Before joining Oxford, I have been working on a series of papers on empirical macroeconomics that implement a deterministic approach to economic research, much like in physics. This project resulted in a book "Mechanomics: Economics as Classical Mechanics" (with Ivan O. Kitov) published by Lambert Academic Publishing in 2010. The book describes an alternative view on the development of major macroeconomic variables such as GDP per capita, inflation, employment, labour force, productivity, participation rate and transition economics. The papers that made it to the book and others can be accessed on my IDEAS page.
