Inspired by Science and Art

I aspire to be an applied economist promoting a better world through science and knowledge based on data. I have a deep interest in applied microeconomics, applied econometrics and price and demand analysis.
Besides my academic life, art and spirituality is a wonderful part of life. I love to paint, dance, cook and study psychology and philosophy.
I believe that not where you are, but where you want to be in your life is of great importance. I love waking up every day to find the best to help people and make the world a happier place to live by science and art.


My Academic Research Fields

My primary research interests lie in the area of applied microeconomics. I use advanced econometrics methods including, panel time-series and nonlinear econometrics methods.
