Research Summary

My research agenda focuses on two projects. The first one consists in studying the interactions between business cycles, economic growth, income distribution dynamics, and the structure of financial systems. The second one explores new econometric models and methods aimed at identifying the permanent and cyclical fluctuations that shape the macroeconomic environment, and vice versa.
