I am an economic analyst. I received my Economics MA in the USA and my Ph.D. in Applied Economics in Belgium. I worked as a researcher at the University of Antwerp, at the Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs and at the Joint Research Center of the European Commission.
Currently I work on economic forecasts and modeling at the DG for Economic and Financial Affairs of the European Commission. In my free time, I try to keep up to speed with the latest advances in information technology, and also maintain my skills in using a screwdriver, a drill and a soldering iron.
