Personal profile


Research Website

I am a macroeconomist at the Department of Econometrics and Business Statistics at Monash University. My research interests are in applied macroeconometrics and time series analysis, with a focus on issues related to estimation, inference and interpretation of sources of business cycle fluctuations. A theme of my work has been the development of tools to inform policy analysis through the estimation and understanding key inputs for macroeconomic policy analysis, such as the output gap and trend inflation.

I was previously a research economist at the Reserve Bank of New Zealand (2014-2018) and also a Central Bank Research Fellow at the Bank for International Settlements (2017). I have also been a research visitor at, amongst others, Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland, Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas, Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco, Bank of Canada, the European Central Bank and the International Monetary Fund.

My research has been published in peer reviewed international journals such as the Review of Economics and Statistics, Journal of International Economics, Journal of Applied Econometrics and Journal of Money, Credit and Banking.
